The United Nations has released a report on the effects of the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, saying there is little time left to address the global food crisis. The Global Crisis Response Group has revealed that an estimated 1.5 billion people in nine countries are facing financial, food or energy crises due to the conflict. Of those, about 1.5 billion live in the worst-affected countries, facing all three crises. The report advises that work should be done to stabilize food and fuel prices, which have reached record highs. Social security measures should be taken and financial assistance to developing countries should be increased. The UN report warns that there is little time left to avert the food crisis in 203, in which we may face problems both in food access and food availability. “If the war continues and high prices for foodgrains and fertilizers continue into the next season, food availability will decline at the worst of times,” it said. Not only that. The current crisis related to corn, wheat and vegetable oils will increase. Which will affect more people. Significantly, in the aftermath of the Corona crisis, the number of people facing food insecurity worldwide has risen sharply to 25 million, up from 127 million previously. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says the effects of the Ukraine war are creating a life-threatening crisis from which no country or community can escape. Countries around the world now have to work together to save lives and livelihoods. The impact of the Russia-Ukraine war can be gauged from the fact that Ukraine is one of the largest wheat producing countries in the world. Wheat prices have risen at a record pace worldwide since the war began. Guterres said the Ukraine crisis could lead to a global crisis. He says three months have passed since the war between Ukraine and Russia and now new problems are emerging. The report says that the crisis of hunger is on the rise worldwide and could worsen if no action is taken. The impact of the war can be gauged from the fact that Ukraine is one of the largest wheat producing countries in the world.
