US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield on Tackling the Global Food Security Crisis
About This Event
The World Food Program describes 2022 as a year of unprecedented hunger, with roughly 828 million people facing food insecurity. Climate change, as well as overlapping global shocks including supply chain bottlenecks and the escalating Russia-Ukraine war have impacted food systems, both abroad and at home, with increasing pricing and food shortages. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield joins the Council following her recent trip to the African continent to discuss global food insecurity and how the United States is working with the international community to alleviate this rising crisis.
