"The global food security crisis is directly attributable to Ukraine, but it's also attributable to climate change, to covid, and to a fragile and interconnected food system

"The link between the food system and fossil fuels and greenhouse gases is very important. The global food system drives at least 25% of greenhouse gas emissions.

"There is a chance before us, in the midst of this dreadful crisis, to respond in the hour of need to the humanitarian crisis but at the same time to try to pivot to a more resilient food system."
