Our Voices 244 – COVID-19: Planting the Seeds for Sustainable Food Security

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic gripped the world, the year 2020 had the potential to be a disastrous one for those living on the brink of starvation. According to the United Nations World Food Program, this year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner, the number of people facing acute food insecurity would likely to double from 135 million to 265 million, because of natural disasters, conflict, and climate change. On this edition of Our Voices, we’ll take a look at the factors causing food shortage and malnutrition during the coronavirus pandemic and how urban farming is rising up as a solution.
