New ZEF policy brief on HIGHER AND MORE VOLATILE FOOD PRICES – COMPLEX IMPLICATIONS OF THE UKRAINE WAR AND THE COVID-19-PANDEMIC points out that
Russia and Ukraine together provide 20% of the world's maize exports, and 30% wheat exports.

The war will further drive up food prices, and countries in the Global South will be impacted most.

Authors of the policy brief appeal to the UN, G20 and G7 to make peace and food security a high priority on their agendas.
