IFPRI’s 2020 Global Food Policy Report was officially launched on April 07 and highlights the critical role that inclusive food systems can play, looking specifically at the obstacles and opportunities as well as the tools and technologies for building inclusive food systems.

COVID-19 is having an immense impact on our health and food systems on a global scale, including the Eurasian region. The coronavirus pandemic therefore has an immediate and long-term effect on poverty, food insecurity, and malnutrition levels; especially for poor and disadvantaged people in the developing world. As a consequence, the awareness and need to work towards inclusive food systems is accelerated by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

IFPRI, the World Bank, Eurasian Center for Food Security and Westminster International University in Tashkent invite interested food and nutrition security professionals to participate on May 27 to learn about the results of the report and to discuss the report and the impact of COVID-19 on food systems in the Eurasia region.
