Climate and conflict contributing to worsening food crisis, says head of world food program

CBC News published this video item, entitled “Climate and conflict contributing to worsening food crisis, says head of World Food Program” – below is their description.

David Beasley, executive director of the UN World Food Program, sat down with Rosemary Barton Live to break down how the war in Ukraine and climate change are contributing to the current food crisis.
