United Nations: The world body has warned that the world is facing a world-class unprecedented emergency and 34.50 million people are heading towards starvation. David Beasley, the head of the United Nations Food Program, said 70 million more people would be at risk of starvation by the time the Ukraine war ends.
The Executive Director of the Food Program at the UN told the Security Council that among the 82 countries where our agency is active, 34.50 million people are facing severe food insecurity and this number is higher in 2020 than before the outbreak of the Corona epidemic. I am two and a half times more.
Of these, 50 million people in 45 countries suffer from severe malnutrition and are on the ‘brink of famine’. Beasley pointed to the escalating conflict, the economic impact of the pandemic, climate change, rising fuel prices and the war in Ukraine, saying the starvation wave has now become a tsunami of starvation.
take concrete steps quickly
David Beasley said, “If we do not take concrete steps soon, the current food price crisis in 2023 could soon turn into a food availability crisis.” On the other hand, Martin Griffiths, the head of humanitarian work for the United Nations, warned about the food crisis in Somalia and Afghanistan.
