Food insecurity exists in more than 1.6 billion people (i.e., over 20% of the global population). The last UN Food Systems Summit emphasised that the world’s food system is irretrievably broken. Recent developments such as the war in Ukraine and State-responses to high food prices, alongside ongoing issues like pandemic-related disruptions, climate crisis and biodiversity loss collectively threaten the possibility of hunger in populations around the world.
This session will discuss both short-term and long-term implications of the ongoing food crisis, as well as possible immediate steps that can contribute to global food security.
