ERS assesses global food insecurity

A new report from USDA’s Economic Research Services analyzes the impact of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and higher input prices on global food insecurity.

Economist Lila Cardell says North Africa and Asia are projected to be the most affected by the conflict.

“And this is due to the region’s dependence on wheat and corn from the Black Sea Region,” she explains.

Economists analyzed income, food prices, and food supply shocks to assess food security in nearly 80 counties as part of the report.
