(September 2012 - April 2016)
This is a four-year research project led by the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) UK and Oxfam in collaboration with research partners in ten developing countries. The project aims to generate evidence on how high and unpredictable food prices affect the lives of individuals in poor and vulnerable communities and to explore the role played by formal social protection programmes and informal coping mechanisms. The study is designed to be longitudinal to understand the dynamics of these impacts . The Collective for Social Science Research is a research partner in Pakistan and will be carrying out an in-depth qualitative study in one rural and one urban site.
