Ekorama. Can we still avoid a global food crisis?

For Matthias Gorman, Secretary General of the Organization for Cooperation and Development (OECD) “Without peace in Ukraine, global food security challenges will worsen. […] He said during Wednesday’s release of the OECD report on the agricultural outlook for the next ten years.

This is a 403 page report that is very dense from you to me.

It has to be divided into two parts for analysis.

The first part is, you guessed it, the short-term consequences of the war in Ukraine, which, in the minds of OECD analysts, will not last 10 years, and the second part is long-term forecasts, that is, the next 10 years.

The OECD is very optimistic about this decade and thinks everyone can be fed with a few changes, such as eating bugs instead of steaks (that rhymes) and getting obese Westerners to lose weight by drastically cutting back on sugar. All this will go through sanctions and new legislation.

In the immediate term, the food crisis is already here, and the question now is how we are going to share available and accessible resources, and I emphasize accessible among countries, starting with the poor.

If you look at what is happening in the energy market, there are still no cuts in rich countries. Pakistan’s capital, Karachi, is already without power for 12 hours a day. I am not talking about Sri Lanka.
