Since 2006, Mali has experienced the full effects of the global food crisis, with price increases of up to 67%. This study presents simulations of the impacts of this crisis and a number of policy responses with respect to the welfare of children. The impacts are analysed in terms of monetary (food) poverty, nutrition, education, child labor and access to health services of children.
