Covid-19 caused a major impact on households’ production and access to quality, nutritious food, due to losses of income, combined with increasing food prices, and restrictions to movements of people, inputs and products. CORE research has drawn out key lessons and priority actions that need to be taken to respond to food and livelihood security challenges. This includes rethinking food and social protection systems to become equitable and resilient and to ensure they encompass gender considerations, market support and inclusive social protection measures.
Join CORE researchers who will present their findings and open up a discussion on the implications for managing multiple crises and building resilience of the most vulnerable. Participants will be invited to consider what this means for future research agendas.
