The COVID-19 outbreak poses huge challenges for the global community. While at the beginning the focus has mainly been on health issues, it has become clear that this crisis will have big impacts on all areas of society. On this page we are focusing on food systems, especially in developing countries: What are the impacts, the challenges and the main actions required?
The information on this page is based on our appreciation, on a selection of key sources (see below) on the input of network members (see right column) and results of the e-discussion organized by the SDC Agriculture & Food Security Network on Governance of City Region Food Systems under COVID-19 (see outcomes in
Spanish). You are very welcome to send your opinions, experiences and inputs to Barbara Mejia.
