“There is no reason to have a food price crisis like the one we had in 2007. (The world) has enough food available, it’s just a logistical problem,” said Maximo Torero, Senior Economist and Deputy Director-General of FAO‘s Economic and Social Development Department, at a virtual press conference in Geneva on Friday. So it’s the containment measures that affect food availability, he said. The blockages have affected both supply and demand, including market access, access to inputs and the ability to move goods. Fish supply has also been affected by the closure of many airports. FAO advocates maintaining supply chains and prohibiting protectionist measures.
