Recent surges in international agricultural prices have led to signi-cant changes in the strategies of market actors in developing countries. At macro-economic level, governments’ production, trade, storage and safety nets policies are being revisited towards increased insulation of producers and consumers from the consequences of short term price -uctuations. At micro-economic level, innovative contractual arrangements between producers, producer organizations, middle men and agro-industries are developed to enhance the reliability of supply and the well-being of farmers. The purpose of this workshop is to document how economic agents, are developing new strategies in response to the current market environment, with a particular focus on developing countries. The workshop thus welcomes contributions related to the following topics :
 Measurement of volatility in international and national prices of agricultural commodities ;
 Macro-economic policy responses to price volatility of agricultural commodities ;
 Market risks and producer behavior in developing countries ;
 Contractual innovations linking smallholder farmers to agricultural markets.
