FAO - Understanding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on food security in Africa, August 2020

Document Type: Informes y evaluaciones
Document Language: English
Africa’s food system is more vulnerable than any other region to the COVID-19 pandemic, due to several ongoing food crises, due to natural disasters and conflicts. These crises have weakened countries’ coping capacities. Several African countries rely on primary commodities for exports, and others rely on food imports. Across the continent, social protection and safety net programmes are weak.
