Addressing the impacts of COVID-19 in food crises
Published : April 2020
Within the framework of the UN Global COVID-19 Humanitarian Response Plan, FAO has reviewed its ongoing humanitarian/resilience programming and analysed the potential impacts of the virus in order to ensure continued support to the most vulnerable and anticipatory actions to address the secondary effects of the virus. The document outlines four areas of action: 1) setting up a global data facility; 2) stabilising incomes and access to food as well as preserving ongoing livelihood and food production assistance for the most acutely food-insecure populations; 3) ensuring continuity of the critical food supply chain for the most vulnerable populations; and 4) ensuring people along the food supply chain are not at risk of COVID-19 transmission. FAO aims to raise an additional USD 110 million.
