Rapid appraisal of food system risks due to Covid-19 measures: Voices from the field

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


Understanding the vulnerabilities of local food systems is a key priority as the world is gaining more knowledge and information of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our food systems. A rapid appraisal carried out by Wageningen University and Research contributes to this emerging understanding of Covid-19 impacts, specifically on perceived Covid-19 control measures and their potential effect on local food systems. Conducted between April 24 and 29, 2020, it covers eighteen Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) in Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. The study provides several suggestions for measures that could reduce or aid some of the presented effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
