In brief: Food insecurity
The World Bank approved a US$2.3 billion program to assist countries in Eastern and Southern Africa increase the resilience of the region’s food systems and tackle growing food insecurity. Food system shocks brought on by extreme weather, pest and disease outbreaks, political and market instability, as well as conflict are more frequent and severe, putting more people at risk of food insecurity. The war in Ukraine further exacerbates these effects by disrupting food, fuel and fertilizer markets. An estimated 66.4 million people in the region are projected to experience food stress, a food crisis, emergency, or famine by July.

The European Commission adopted a proposal to mobilize €600 million (US$631 million) from the reserves of the European Development Fund to address the current food security crisis aggravated by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. These funds will support African, Caribbean and Pacific countries to cope with the dire situation through humanitarian assistance, sustainable food production, food systems resilience and macro-economic support.
