There are fears that without a grain deal some of the poorest parts of the world will see increasing levels of hunger and malnutrition as prices rise.
British charity Oxfam is calling for a total rethink on how to feed the world. It argues that even before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, hundreds of millions of people were going hungry.
It says the fact that parts of Somalia and South Sudan are close to famine shows that the grain deal was not a cure-all to end hunger.
Oxfam is calling for more investment in small-scale farming in poorer countries instead of what it calls an unhealthy reliance on one of the world’s few breadbaskets.
