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 and prioritisation of our continuous reading of new information. It is thus preliminary and will be regularly updated. You are very welcome to send your opinions, experiences and inputs to
