Health and agri-food systems must be strengthened and improved to counter the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and to avoid a global food crisis, the Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), QU Dongyu, said today. "Beyond jeopardizing human health, the pandemic is also disrupting our agri-food systems that are the core to our health and life," the FAO Director-General told world leaders at the virtual Global Health Summit of the G20.  "We need to take immediate action, to avoid a global food crisis with long-term impacts."

Research led by Finland's Aalto University assessed just how global food production will be affected if greenhouse gas emissions are left uncut. The research reveals that rapid, out-of-control growth of greenhouse gas emissions may, by the end of the century, lead to more than a third of current global food production falling into conditions in which no food is grown today.

Scientists from the University of California Riverside (UC Riverside) have discovered the genes in important agricultural crops such as tomatoes and rice that will help the crops survive longer during extreme periods of drought brought by global warming.The scientists used xylem differentiation in tomato to profile the tomato root cell type mRNA fragments from greenhouse experiments and in the actual field. They discovered cell type-enriched genes responsible for telling the plant to make three things: xylem, lignin, and suberin

Experts from the University of São Paulo analyzed blood samples from Brazil and found that people who have had Dengue previously are twice as likely to exhibit COVID-19 symptoms when infected by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The study is published in the Oxford Academic journal Clinical Infectious Diseases. The researchers collected blood samples from 1,285 residents of Mâncio Lima, a small town in the state of Acre, part of Brazil's Amazon region.

In the last 100 years, there have been over a dozen plant pandemics that affected key food crops. With the rapidly increasing world population and the massive impact of climate change, failing to innovate ways to make crops resilient to diseases can make millions go hungry, according to 2Blades Foundation's video titled The Work of Our Lives.

The Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), QU Dongyu, has welcomed an €8 million contribution from the European Union (EU) that will enable countries in the Horn of Africa to maintain a state of readiness in the face of a possible resurgence of Desert Locusts. The European Commission announced the funding - from the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) - as another example of the EU's sustained commitment to control this upsurge since its early days in 2020.

Sustainable wheat products using drought-tolerant HB4 wheat will soon become available to consumers in Brazil and Argentina. These wheat products will also be fully traceable by consumers through a farm-to-fork strategy secured on blockchain technology. The initiative aims to significantly reduce carbon footprint and other environmental positive externalities that help fight climate change and preserve natural ecosystems using the HB4 wheat. The said strategy makes the wheat products fully traceable by consumers who will be able to access field-specific information, climate facts and other important data of potential interest.

With each day that passes, more lives are at stake as hunger tightens its grip in southern Madagascar. This is the stark warning from two United Nations agencies, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP), as they seek to draw international attention to a humanitarian crisis that risks being invisible. Around 1.14 million people in the south of Madagascar are facing high levels of acute food insecurity, of which nearly 14 000 people are in ‘Catastrophe' (Phase 5 - the highest in the five-step scale of the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC).
