The Ukraine war and threats to food and energy security

The Russia-Ukraine crisis is amplifying food insecurity and the cost of living crisis that had already followed the COVID-19 pandemic, and risks triggering a “cascade” of supply chain disruptions, market volatility, resource insecurity, the displacement of people and geopolitical upheaval. The potential for simultaneous price or supply shocks in food and energy, including those induced by climate change, is growing.
