Even before the war in Ukraine, food and energy prices and global hunger were already on the rise due to the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change impacts, and conflicts. The first half of 2022 has witnessed one of the largest shocks to global food and energy markets that the world has seen in decades. While most countries are impacted by these shocks, poor households face the highest burden.
This event will look at specific actions that the international community needs to focus on to address both energy and food shocks, using concrete examples of how countries are working on tackling the immediate crises without compromising long-term goals of efficiency, sustainability, and resilience. It will examine a number of tangible solutions that are shaping a sustainable recovery from the point of view of countries and communities, offering a snapshot of immediate action from across WBG regions in our client countries.
