This morning I participated in a webinar organized by the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf).
The session focused on the impact of the Russia-Ukraine war on the South African economy. There were excellent speakers, Professors Nicola Viegi and Heinrich Bohlmann, from the University of Pretoria. They provided valuable inputs on energy and macroeconomy dynamics.
Stellenbosch University’s Professor Jonathan Jansen moderated the conversation.
My input was mainly on agriculture and food supply dynamics. I also commented on the effects of the KZN devastating rains on the sector. The recording for it is available here.
For background reading about how South African agriculture and consumers will feel the war in Ukraine, you can access a write-up from last month here.
