The COVID-19 pandemic has serious potential negative impacts on food security and nutrition, livelihoods and incomes, and poverty all over the world.
As part of its objective to contribute to better-informed policies to improve food security and nutrition and enhance resilience to shocks, the Food Security Portal is tracking the effects of the global pandemic on food prices, food security, and nutrition and is monitoring domestic and trade policy responses to COVID-19. This page brings together tools and resources, blog posts, and links to other COVID-19 pages for tracking and analyzing the potential impacts of the global pandemic.
