COVID-19 is having a huge impact on the world, and especially on Africa, disrupting value chains, including the food-related ones, which might lead to an acute food crisis. What impact is the coronavirus having on food security across Africa? What can be done to mitigate the risks? How can Africa achieve the objective of food self-sufficiency?
