Video message on Food Coalition.

In a short amount of time, COVID-19 has reached every part of the world.,  The pandemic poses a threat not only to health, but also to food systems, food security and nutrition.

Prior to COVID-19, 690 million people were already suffering from hunger. The pandemic may add between 83 and 132 million people to the total number of undernourished in the world, depending on the economic growth scenario.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a global problem that calls for a global response and joint action. The Food Coalition offers a unified, multi-stakeholder approach to prevent a health crisis from becoming a food crisis.

TCP - Technical Cooperation Programme

VC - Voluntary Contribution

To alleviate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Food Coalition will:

Mobilize resources, expertise and innovation

Advocate for a joint and coordinated response

Promote dialogue and exchange of knowledge and expertise among countries

Identify solutions which respond to needs on the ground

Expand and strengthen international cooperation and partnership for long-term impact

Response and recovery

As a response to COVID-19, FAO launched a comprehensive response and recovery programme designed around seven priority areas of work. The programme helps countries not only address the immediate effects of the pandemic, but also lay the groundwork for recovery and building back better.  The Food Coalition supports this programme by leveraging high-level political, financial resources and technical expertise, with a focus on country-level needs and demands.
