No Time for Aid Budget Cuts amid Urgent Hunger Crisis in East Africa
Circle: No Time for Aid Budget Cuts amid Urgent Hunger Crisis in East Africa
September 6, 2022
With David Miliband
Many African countries depend on grain and fertiliser imports from Russia and Ukraine. Food insecurity and a surge in energy prices endanger the economic output of economies and the overall stability of African states. Observers also fear that the looming energy crisis in Europe further diverts attention from economic cooperation with Africa – at a time when close, value-based partnerships are more important than ever.
Additionally, hunger is seldom only a question of supply, but encompasses production, supply chains, cooling and storage, distribution, market access and export fixation. Urgent humanitarian action is required as well as diversification and far-reaching systemic changes in food systems and global trade. Together with David Miliband, President of the International Rescue Committee and former Foreign Minister of the UK, and Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik, we discussed new approaches in development and economic cooperation to address the root causes of hunger and ensure a world that can feed itself.
