ABOUT THE EVENT
The world is in the midst of rising food prices that are hitting the poor the hardest. Even before COVID-19, chronic and acute hunger were on the rise due to several factors, including conflict, socio-economic conditions, and climate change. Disruption caused by the war in Ukraine has added to price pressures, with costs likely to remain high for the foreseeable future, pushing millions of people into acute food insecurity with costly implications for human capital.
What targeted social protection measures can be taken to mitigate the impact of food and other price hikes to poor households, while tackling food and fertilizer supply chain bottlenecks and trade restrictions? How can governments, private businesses, and partners work to ensure more sustainable and nutritious food systems in the face of rising climate, conflict, and economic risks?
This event will highlight key takeaways from the closed-door Human Capital Ministerial Conclave with focus on how countries can invest in social protection, productive inclusion, and nutrition-sensitive policies to not only avert setbacks to human capital but also to strengthen these critical outcomes for long term growth and productivity.
