Coordination in Food Security Crises: A Stakeholder Analysis of the Challenges Facing the Global Food Security Cluster
By Daniel Maxwell and John Parker (2012). Food Security , Vol. 4(1), pp. 25-40.

The creation of the global cluster coincides with a period in which the number of food security actors has continued to grow, the operating environment has become more complex, and the range of responses has required greater levels of skill in analysis, planning, implementation and monitoring. All of this underscores the need for greater coordination.
