San Jose, 22 May 2023 (IICA). According to Jose Luis Chicoma, former Minister of Production in Peru and member of Foodtank “Food insecurity spiked in many countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean in recent years. In 2014, 24.6 percent of the region’s population was food insecure in 2014, compared with 40.6 percent in 2021, largely as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns and their economic fallout”. In the rest of the world the situation doesn’t look better.
