Food Security and COVID-19
Efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 have resulted in more than 100 million people backsliding into poverty and hunger and pushed an additional 25 million to crisis levels of hunger. The impacts are also projected to be worse in 2021 and long-lasting, exacerbating both inequality and already concerning trends caused by conflict and climate change. In this talk, Dr. Collins will outline the impact pathways that have resulted in these dire outcomes, as well as the near and long-term solutions needed to mitigate these impacts and speed recovery, including the centrality of resilience for international development in the face of the triple threat of COVID, climate and conflict.
This talk is led by the Climate and Human Security Studies Group
