Call to action against the global food crisis

Leaders of various international organizations call for urgent and forceful action to deal with the global food crisis and the lack of supply.

Many high-end firms

A union of international and very high-level organizations have come together for the occasion. Those are: the Director General of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Qu Dongyu, International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva, World Bank Group (WBG) President David Malpass, World Food Program (WFP) Executive Director David Beasley, and the Director General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

Ukraine, but also Russia, keys to global food supplies

Both countries were major exporters of both food and grain, occupying a large percentage worldwide, which now with the conflict has been completely altered. It has also caused a clear rise in energy prices. A deadly combination, especially for third world countries, which see how something as basic as food is no longer within their economic reach.

Another point that can exacerbate the global food crisis is the issue of fertilizers; the two Slavic countries are also large producers.

Requests for progress and improvements for the future

In addition to the temporary urgent action, they have called for the improvement of trade and food production in the world with several points:

  • Support efficient production and trade.
  • Improve transparency.
  • Accelerate innovation and joint planning.
  • Invest in the transformation of food systems.
