The food supply chain has delivered; now is the time for agriculture
After battling the COVID-19 pandemic for more than two months, countries have begun relaxing lockdowns and people are slowly getting used to the new normal of masks, social distancing, and no large gatherings in their daily life. A third of the global population is still under some form of lockdown, down from half the global population in early April.
Lockdowns have been a stress test particularly for the global food system. The third of the world population still under lockdown after two months is a testimony to how well the global food system has performed.
