WORSENING GLOBAL HUNGER CRISIS
The war in Ukraine is undermining global food security and nutrition, which is already seriously compromised by the COVID-19 pandemic, other conflicts, climate change and rising food prices. CFS has offered its unique, science-backed global platform to coordinate policy responses to the crisis.
This has also been the focus of discussion in the public debate segment of the last three CFS Bureau and Advisory Group meeting. Watch the debate on 25 May 2022 here.
