FAO Global Information and Early Warning System on Food and Agriculture (GIEWS), housed in the Markets and Trade Division (EST), has launched a new version of the Food Price Monitoring and Analysis (FPMA) Tool. The new version brings the tool up to date with the latest web technologies, making it more performant with an ever-growing dataset.
The FPMA Tool is a web-based application for analyzing and disseminating food price data. The FAO GIEWS’ global version – covering over 1 800 selected domestic food price series in over 90 countries and about 80 international commodity quotations – is updated continuously with the latest available data, providing the international community and decision makers with timely food price information.
The FPMA Tool is also available for countries or regional institutions wishing to have their own versions to strengthen country and regional level market information systems to support evidence-based decisions.
