Conflict & Food Security – UN Security Council Open Debate

United Nations published this video item, entitled “Conflict & Food Security – UN Security Council Open Debate” – below is their description.

The Global Humanitarian Overview 2021 projects a historic level of food insecurity, with famine looming in several countries, due in large part to conflict, and with the World Food Programme (WFP) targeting more people in need than at any point in its 60-year history.

The food security and nutrition outlook has worsened even further, with the impact of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) coming into sharp focus. It is essential that we understand where the risks are today, where they might be looming in future months, and where the Council must act to stop conflict-driven food insecurity and hold those responsible to account.

Briefers:

– UN Secretary-General António Guterres

– David Beasley, Executive Director of the World Food Programme

– Gabriela Bucher, Executive Director of Oxfam International
