New ZEF policy brief points out that Russia and Ukraine together provide 20% of the world’s maize exports, and 30% wheat exports. The war will therefore further drive up food prices, and countries in the Global South will be impacted most.
The authors of the policy brief appeal to the UN, G20 and G7 to make peace and food security a high priority on their agendas.
