The latest edition of the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World, published today, estimates that almost 690 million people went hungry in 2019 – up by 10 million from 2018, and by nearly 60 million in five years.

COVID-19 has exposed the vulnerability of our economies to shocks, with governments desperately looking for recovery options that deliver new jobs and growth. The pandemic has also laid bare glaring inequalities in our societies, threatening to derail achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. The agricultural development sector has stalled as field work has been restricted. In discussions held online from their homes around the world, researchers have observed a new vista emerging of a changed world, one to which they, too, must adapt, finding new ways of working and new systems that are more resilient to the current and future pandemics.

As the health and economic impacts of COVID-19 continue to evolve, researchers have been using new and creative methods of data collection. Widespread use of approaches such as computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) has generated enthusiasm for phone surveys to eventually replace face-to-face fieldwork in the long run as a cheaper and faster alternative.  But how well do phone surveys perform in terms of response rates, response bias, and data quality—particularly for women respondents?

The analysis of collaborative science by Herz et al. (1) raises additional points worth consideration. The “deeply rooted biases in perceived self-contribution” that Herz et al. (1) describe are also well known outside of science. Most (all?) of us have lived with roommates, and worked alongside labmates, whom we have had to clean up after. From personal experience, I know I am fully cognizant of this time and effort

With a spring in her step, Jasinta starts the day by going to her farm in Bokwango, southwest Cameroon. Every morning she gets up, checks on her chickens, feeds them and fills their trough. A mother of four, Jasinta is a role model for many in her neighbourhood - admired for the chickens that she proudly raises and sells. Her new business is the product of an FAO initiative helping vulnerable people in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon, which are currently facing a socio-political crisis.

Bihar, the third-most populous state in eastern India, lies in the river plains of the river Ganga’s basin. Endowed with fertile alluvial soil and ground water resources, Bihar has a net sown area of 60% of its total geographical area under cultivation, where rice, wheat, and maize are the major cereal crops cultivated. Agriculture is at the core of the states’ economy, employing nearly 77 % of the workforce and generating 35 % of the state domestic product.

“One extreme view of this would be that you start out wired up for every possible contingency,” says Jeff Lichtman, a neuroscientist at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. Over time, a large percentage of those wires are permanently disconnected, says Lichtman. “What you're left with is a narrower nervous system,” he explains. “But it’s tuned exactly to the world you found yourself in.”

As the world faces the unprecedented pandemic, we must restore the links between people and nature to accelerate the transformation of our food systems to make them more sustainable, resilient and equitable, FAO-Director-General QU Dongyu said on Tuesday. He delivered his remarks at a special virtual side-event on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework held on the margins of the 2020 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development and convened by the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
