According to him, the war between Russia and Ukraine, which together produce nearly a third of the world’s wheat, “only added fuel to a long -burning fire.”

Rising prices for major crops have put another 400 million people worldwide at risk this year.

“While access to fertilizer is severely limited, the drought in wheat-growing regions is the strongest in 20 years,” Menker said.

In turn, World Food Program executive director David Beasley said “hunger is knocking at the door” of 49 million people in 43 countries, and hunger is accompanied by political destabilization.
