Economic and food security implications of the COVID-19 outbreak Download

Published : April 2020

This briefing note, produced by the WFP, analyses economic and food security implications of the COVID-19 outbreak.  It provides an update with insights from different regions, including West and Central Africa. While many West and Central African countries continue to be affected by conflict and climate-related shocks, the major fallout from COVID-19 is likely to be commodity market volatility and supply chain disruption impacting food imports. Nigeria will be particularly hard hit due to the drop in oil price.
