2012). Linking food prices and food security Using models that link environmental variability as measured by satellite remote sensing to food price dynamics, quantitative assessment of the likely impact of environmental change on food prices can be explored. It is possible to identify in a predictive way exogenous shocks to local food price dynamics. Modeling results described here show that local food price changes can be predicted in 87 out of the 179 locations where there were at least five years of monthly food price observations.
