Our partner Wageningen University & Research has released a rich ’rapid appraisal’ of the vulnerabilities of local food systems following from the Covid-19 pandemics. The analysis focuses on the effects on diets and nutrition for people living in low and middle income countries (LMIC) in Asia, sub- Saharan Africa and Latin America.

Recommendations include ensuring accessibility of agricultural inputs for food producing areas, releasing trade bans and restrictions to international trade, and realizing shorter local and regional food supply chains.
