Food Protectionism: Looming on the horizon, writes Harini Calamur (Free Press Journal)
Free Press Journal published an article stating that the world seems to be plunging into another war. A much older and pervasive war. The war against hunger. The focus needs to be on minimizing the impact on the poorest. Not just to ensure that western populations do not face discomfort. And to do that the nations of the global South need to talk. The article included an IFPRI figure titled “Share in global markets, volume” that described the Russian Federation and Ukraine’s crop volume—barley, maize, sunflower, sunflower oil, and wheat. The figure excluded Intra-EU trade from the computations. Senior research fellow David Laborde created the figure.
