Not going hungry during Covid-19

Published 13. Aug 2020
Promoting local food systems.

Governments across the Horn and East Africa are tentatively relaxing some of the restrictions on movement and public gatherings put in place to limit the spread of Covid-19.

As these restrictions are lifted, or re-imposed, promoting and maintaining strong, ecologically sound, local food systems will be critical to ensuring food and nutrition security of vulnerable populations, especially as the longer-term impacts of the virus take effect.
