Summary:
Global food security is underpinned by trade in a few crops and fertilizers. Just three crops - maize, wheat and rice - account for around 60 per cent of global food energy intake. Three principal kinds of chokepoint are critical to global food security: maritime straits along shipping lanes; coastal infrastructure in major crop-exporting regions; and inland transport infrastructure in major exporting regions.

Abstract:

Global food security is underpinned by trade in a few crops and fertilizers. Just three crops - maize, wheat and rice - account for around 60 per cent of global food energy intake. Three principal kinds of chokepoint are critical to global food security: maritime straits along shipping lanes; coastal infrastructure in major crop-exporting regions; and inland transport infrastructure in major exporting regions. A serious interruption at one or more of these chokepoints could conceivably lead to supply shortfalls and price spikes, with systemic consequences that could reach beyond food markets. More commonplace disruptions may not in themselves trigger crises, but can add to delays, spoilage and transport costs, constraining market responsiveness and contributing to higher prices and increased volatility.
