Russia - Ukraine War : The bombing of the Ukraine war on the world's food security; risk of violence

Publish Date: 28 Apr, 2022 |
 

These two countries directly involved in the war between Russia and Ukraine are being seriously affected, but this war is also pushing a large population of the world towards hunger. Experts have expressed serious concern about this. On the one hand, climate change has already severely affected the global average agricultural production, then this war is being seen as a double whammy on the world's food production.

Huge drop in Production

Climate change has already reduced global food production by one-fifth of the total, according to food experts from the University of Canberra. This war has deepened this problem. Russia and Ukraine account for 30 percent of the world's total wheat exports. In such a situation, in order to ensure their food security, countries which are dependent on net imports, have a big problem of starvation.

Risk of Violence in Poor Countries

An increase of 1.2 °C in the global average temperature has reduced the world's agricultural production by 21 percent. Although it is not affecting the rich countries much, but the back of the poor countries is breaking.

Food insecurity and malnutrition have increased rapidly in countries in Africa, Central and South America due to crop damage caused by floods and droughts. Food insecurity is adversely affecting all other conditions related to human life. The danger of inciting violence from this cannot be ruled out.
