Our Voices 244 - COVID-19: Planting the Seeds for Sustainable Food Security
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic gripped the world, the year 2020 had the potential to be a disastrous one for those living on the brink of starvation. According to the United Nations World Food Program, this year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner, the number of people facing acute food insecurity would likely to double from 135 million to 265 million, because of natural disasters, conflict, and climate change. On this edition of Our Voices, we'll take a look at the factors causing food shortage and malnutrition during the coronavirus pandemic and how urban farming is rising up as a solution.
Welcome to “Our Voices”. This is where African women bring the continent’s most pressing issues to the table. Hosted by Hayde Adams FitzPatrick, Ayen Bior and Auriane Itangishaka, we'll ask questions, share ideas, discuss solutions, and most importantly, bring voices - Our Voices - to the conversation.
We’re bringing women’s voices to the conversation and, more than that, we’re building a community of inclusion and empowerment. We know you want to talk about the important issues of our time. And this is the place to do it. Your voice matters – every voice matters so join us in this conversation. Together, we can start transformational conversations online, in our living rooms, our communities, in our lives.
