WHAT’S THE ISSUE?
Earlier this year, the World Food Programme had warned that the combination of climate change, Covid and conflicts in Ethiopia, Syria and Yemen constituted a perfect storm of food insecurity risk factors for the world’s poorest countries.
And then came the conflict in Ukraine – a country that normally exports grain to 400 million people around the world, but now, with none of its major ports now operative, won’t be able to do so.
So just what impact will this have on global food security? Monika Tothova, economist at the UN’s Food & Agriculture Organization joins Stephen to explain.
