To make the general public and decision makers better aware of these challenges, the World Bank and the Eurasian Center for Food Security (ECFS) has initiated a series of research projects (case studies) to analyze key food security issues in selected countries of the region. This is the second volume that continues the series and covers the Kyrgyz Republic, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

Each country addresses food security through a set of policy measures implemented by different levels of government. Government policies and actions, however, should be backed by solid evidence regarding each particular challenge. The case studies presented in this series serve as a useful and reliable tool to inform policy recommendations dealing with specific food security issues.

The current publication is of interest to decision-makers, advisers and analysts in the area of food security, agro politics and sustainable use of natural resources, especially for those who deal with these topics in Eurasia. Moreover, the cases will serve both to students to strengthen their analytical and research capacity and to professors who teach courses on food security and agro policy.

The volume includes outcomes of research conducted in the following Eurasian countries:
