With food prices continuing to rise, the UN is warning of a global crisis starting very soon.

Fears of a worldwide food crisis are growing thanks to the war in #Ukraine, climate change, and worldwide inflation increasing daily.

The International money director, told the planet Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland that "the anxiety about access to food at an inexpensive price globally is hitting the roof" as food prices continue "to go up up up". United Nations Secretary-General warned of "the specter of a worldwide food shortage within the coming months" without urgent international action. The U.N. estimates that global food prices have risen by almost one-third within the past year, fertilizer by quite half, and oil prices by nearly two-thirds. According to U.N. figures, the amount of severely food-insecure people has doubled within the past two years, from 135 million pre-pandemic to 276 million today. Now, quite half 1,000,000 people are experiencing famine conditions, per the U.N., a rise of quite 500% since 2016.
