When the Russia-Ukraine war started, we all worried about its impact on global agriculture and South African consumers. I wrote an article assessing how South African agriculture and consumers will feel the war in Ukraine for Econ3x3, published here.
This week, headlines in global publications such as The Economist, The Washington Post, and the Financial Times focused on the rising global food insecurity crisis.
This prompted the Econ3x3 editor, Pippa Green, to ask that I provide an updated view on the subject for South Africa.
The essay is now published, and you can read it by clicking here — Reflections on South Africa’s food security: the effects of the Russia-Ukraine war.
