The impact of COVID-19, conflicts, climate crisis, and the war in Ukraine are having terrible consequences all over the world, especially regarding food insecurity. Hence the appeal to governments and main stakeholders to commit themselves at all levels and to urge the implementation of sustainable recovery strategies based on addressing the impacts of climate change and conflicts. “A world without hunger is possible if people are motivated and encouraged to become active players in food production.”
