COVID-19 Impact: The Seeds Of A Future Hunger Pandemic?
Based on information from 25 countries of operation, Action Against Hunger is highly alarmed at how COVID-19 is impacting food and health systems and its impact on people. This report further examines how COVID-19 exacerbates existing vulnerabilities, more specifically with regards to food and nutrition security as well as access to basic services, including water and sanitation. While many countries have taken necessary measures to fight against this pandemic, these actions have therefore constrained both movement of essential goods and people as well as disrupted food and value chains. This has led to shortages or a surge in food prices in different countries and regions, directly impacting the livelihood of millions.
