People are paying more for food in 2022 - a lot more! And in countries where food security is frail, access to the basics is going to get harder. Price spikes are being felt around the world. In some cases leading to violence, in other cases, triggering famine warnings. Russia's war in Ukraine is fuelling the crisis first by targeting Ukraine's wheat and sunflower oil producers, and second by disrupting global trade networks. What should G7 and G20 nations be doing about this? According to Ian Mitchell, it may be time to go beyond traditional notions of food aid, and to look at a bigger determinant: Finance. Ian Mitchell is a senior fellow and the director of development cooperation in Europe at the Center for Global Development. He leads CGD's work in Europe on how governments' policies accelerate or inhibit development and poverty reduction—considering both the effectiveness of aid and policies beyond aid including trade, migration, environment, and security. He is also an associate fellow at Chatham House and at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Mitchell has expertise in the economics and developmental impact of including on trade, agriculture, and policy development in the EU and G20. He leads the annual Commitment to Development Index (CDI) and the Quality of Official Development Assistance (QuODA). Recently, he has developed new measures of how agriculture and trade policies affect lower income countries; identified new metrics of aid effectiveness; and developed new approaches to the UK's development policy post-Brexit.

The confluence of climate change, COVID-19, and the war in Ukraine have placed enormous stress on food systems across the globe. Food insecurity spiked in 2020 and has stayed high, and the number of undernourished people is on the rise.  As we respond to this emergency, there is an opportunity—and a need—to strengthen the kind of strategic investments that will make our agrifood systems resilient to tomorrow's shocks. “We cannot be running crisis to crisis, says Bram Goverts, Director General of the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center, or CYMMIT, in this week's New Security Broadcast. “We need to look at the underlying elements that are provoking these ripple effects.” On the episode, ECSP Director Lauren Risi and ECSP Advisor Sharon Burke speak with Goverts and his colleague Kai Sonder, head of CYMMIT's Geographic Information System Unit, about how to address the unfolding food crisis as we simultaneously build food system resilience in the medium and long term. Drawing from their newly-published article in Nature Food, Goverts and Sonder share approaches that governments, civil society, and private actors can take to tackle today's wheat supply disruptions and food insecurity. They also share past success stories and lay out key challenges moving forward.  Beyond the immediate humanitarian aid needed to boost food security, Goverts identifies intensified wheat production and greater investments in local cereals as essential short-term priorities. Medium-term investments should focus on agricultural production that is agroecologically suitable, policies that support the adoption of improved crop varieties, and data analysis to target the vulnerabilities of smallholder farmers. And with long term goals in mind, Goverts says that we need to ask “how can we enhance our ecosystem diversity, resolve the gender disparity [in the agricultural sector] and invest in agrifood transformation from efficiency to resilience?” Both experts emphasize that these approaches aren't meant to be taken incrementally. “We're really saying we need to start today, taking actions with an impact on the short, medium, and long term. It would be a mistake to only focus on the on the short-term actions that need to be taken,” says Goverts.  Sonder acknowledges that transforming agricultural systems takes time—and isn't easy. “You need to invest in breeding systems. You need to build capacity and identify areas where that is easily possible,” he explains. “Bringing out a new variety of wheat or maize or other crop takes up to ten years.” Introducing new farming technologies can also come with challenges, since it requires making sure those technologies can actually be maintained. “You have to ensure that there are mechanics who can fix [them] quickly, that there's a supply chain for spare parts,” observes Sonder. And securing sustained large-scale investment for research or program activities can prove difficult, as was the case for a study CYMMIT did on the potential for wheat in Africa. “The ministers were very interested” Sonder says. “But other crisis come along, and then the funds go somewhere else.”  Despite the hurdles, there are plenty of examples of agrifood interventions with positive impact. For instance, one of CYMMIT's current areas of work is in developing risk assessment and disease warning systems to allow people to act quickly before a crisis occurs. Sonder describes how his colleagues in Ethiopia had a recent success in identifying a risk of rust epidemic in collaboration with the government and stakeholders on the ground by using weather models and data.  The joint effort allowed the government “the government was able “to procure and to spread fungicides and to be prepared for that crisis,” he says. Addressing the challenges that underly world hunger will take both this kind of strategic medium-term action as well as longer-term transformations—Even as we respond to the current hunger crisis with much-needed short-term efforts, we can also be reshaping our global agricultural systems for a more biodiverse, equitable, and resilient future. Sources: Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN, Nature, World Economic ForumPhoto Credit: Man applies fertilizer using multi-crop bed planter in maize field in Islamabad, Pakistan, courtesy of flickr user USAID Pakistan.

The Government has given legal protection to beavers in England, which means it will be illegal to harm or move them without a licence. They have had protection in Scotland since 2019. We hear from a farmer in Scotland who says they do cause problems there, and from the Wildlife Trust which welcomes the protection, but urges the government to provide more details of management practices. A campaign against a controversial rabbit meat and fur farm in Nottinghamshire is being stepped up. Opponents are staging weekly protests outside the site at East Bridgford. But the owners say it complies with all regulations and standards. Last month 12 rabbits were taken from the farm in a late night raid that's now being investigated by police. All week we're going to be exploring the pressure on food systems around the world and hear why they are under stress. The reasons are multiple and complex – rather like the global food system itself. A deal has been signed to release millions of tonnes of grain from Ukraine – but it will take time for global wheat supplies to get back to normal. There are also high input prices, and the cost of fuel. Longer term, the pressure of climate change on food production and who needs food, keeps building. The presenter is Anna Hill.

Since the war in Ukraine broke out, the words “food security” and "food crisis" are on everyone's lips. The conflict has had rippling effects on millions of people's lives, with President Putin holding the specter of hunger over their head. Ukraine and Russia being such big producers and exporters of grain, elsewhere concerns are indeed mounting over potential food shortages. Meanwhile, the conflict has sent global food prices skyrocketing, which are hitting the poorest populations the hardest. To cope with this crisis, some in Europe have suggested to lower environmental standards in agriculture in favour of increasing food production. Others like Slow Food, warn that this is a mistake, because environmental protection is key to ensure sustainable food security in the long run. We hear many things about this food crisis, and this is a complex topic to grasp. How does it impact Europe and the world? How can we feed the world without the Ukrainian crops? Do we really need to produce more food while other farming alternatives are just waiting to be scaled up? We take a step back and untangle these complex issues with our guests: Nick Jacobs, director of IPES Food (the International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems) Nathalie Bolduc, researcher at IDDRI (Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations) David Peacock, Slow Food farmer in Germany Do not hesitate to follow @SlowFoodEurope on Twitter, as well as our guests: @IPESFood and @IDDRI_English.

The U.S. on Thursday accused Russia of using food as a weapon in its war on Ukraine, and in turn, creating a global food security crisis. Ukraine grows enough food to feed 400 million people, and Ukraine and Russia together account for a third of the world's wheat exports. But Russia's invasion and blockade of Ukrainian ports are preventing exports of grain and steel. Nick Schifrin reports. PBS NewsHour is supported by - https://www.pbs.org/newshour/about/funders

The United Nations Secretary General has warned that the war in Ukraine is increasing the risk of a global food shortage, and the possibility of mass hunger. At a UN summit in New York, António Guterres said the Russian invasion had compounded food insecurity, which had already been affected by rising temperatures and the pandemic. We speak to Matthew Hollingworth, Emergency Coordinator and Country Director in Ukraine for World Food Prog. Also, we hear from a volunteer helping fellow Ukrainian women cope with their new lives in Poland. Turkey says it will block Sweden and Finland joining NATO and accuses them of harbouring terrorists who threaten the Turkish state. We speak to an advisor to president Erdogan. And a rare insight into Afghanistan's Ministry of Vice and Virtue. (Photo credit: Getty Images)

On today's episode Brian Becker and Prof. Richard Wolff discuss the global food crisis that is taking shape with major price rises already being felt around the world – a grave situation that is expected to deepen. As the war in Ukraine drags on and as the western countries attempt to cut Russia off from the global economy, disruptions to supply chains and shortages are becoming even more severe. The global capitalist market is yet again proving to be incapable of ensuring something as basic as food to the world's population.
