With 222 million people experiencing high acute food insecurity across 53 countries, and an alarming food security outlook for 2023, investing in agriculture in emergency contexts has never been so critical.


The earthquakes that struck southern Türkiye and the northern part of the Syrian Arab Republic on 6 February 2023 caused immense damages and losses, particularly in the countries’ rural areas.


The war in Ukraine is significantly impacting food security at the national and global levels. Without urgent support to the Ukrainian agrifood sector, humanitarian needs will continue to rise and the stability of global food value chains will remain under threat.
