Chronic hunger and poverty are increasing at a dramatic pace for the first time in decades. Communities are being hit by ongoing setbacks from COVID-19, more frequent and intense weather-related disasters fueled by climate change and prolonged conflicts. Now, the Ukraine crisis is amplifying these effects with food, fuel and fertilizer price spikes, leading to a widespread food crisis.
Join us for a virtual session: The Silent Emergency – The Food Crisis Unfolding Across the Globe on Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 11:00 a.m. EST/10:00 a.m. CST/8:00 am PST to hear about the situation millions around the world are facing, the steps the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Mercy Corps and others are taking to respond, and what urgent action we must take as a global community to avert a worsening crisis.
This webinar is co-hosted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Center for Disaster Philanthropy and Mercy Corps.
