DescriptionThis study examines household food-access status in rural areas of Guinea, a poor, net food-importing West African state, during the height of the food-price crisis. Linking a household's food-access status with specific household characteristics and strategies, the article provides evidence on those unique characteristics and strategies favouring sustained food access during the price crisis. The findings are discussed and their policy implications reviewed, identifying good practice for targeting and intervention and suggestions for further research.
