The Committee on World Food Security via its High-Level Panel of Experts has started  an interim Issue Paper Series on the Impact of COVID-19 on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN). This series aims to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting food systems directly through impacts on food supply and demand, and indirectly - but just as importantly - through decreases in purchasing power, the capacity to produce and distribute food, and the intensification of care tasks, all of which will have differentiated impacts and will more strongly affect the poor and vulnerable.

The first paper in this series can be downloaded here:
