Recent history has demonstrated that disruptive events can pose significant challenges to global supply chains. As the world emerges from the turmoil inflicted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and as the focus increasingly turns to climate change, building resilience to future shocks is at the top of the agenda.

The International Grains Council (IGC) aims to promote food market transparency and the coordination of policy action in response to market uncertainty. Grains, rice and oilseeds market conditions are monitored on a daily basis, through circulation of daily reports and maintaining web-based information services. In October 2012, the IGC joined the Secretariat of the Agricultural Market Information System (AMIS), established at the request of Agriculture Ministers of the G20.
