This report is based on qualitative research undertaken between February and April 2010 in one rural and one urban community in each of Bangladesh, Indonesia, Kenya, Yemen and Zambia.

Keywords: food crisis, global financial crisis, poverty, gender, social impacts, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Kenya, Yemen, Zambia
