Position Paper on Rural Development – The role of animal integration in local and national food systems.

The COVID-19 pandemic is testing the resilience of communities globally, with very differentiated impacts, exacerbating existing inequities and creating new ones. To help shape an evidence-based response to COVID-19, Alliance2015 members jointly conducted a survey in 25 countries. The survey provides striking information on the impacts of COVID-19 on food security, WASH, health, education, income, indebtedness and psychosocial conditions of households.
The 2019 GHI shows that multiple countries have higher hunger levels now than in 2010. Approximately 45 countries are set to fail to achieve low levels of hunger by 2030. Conflict, inequality, and the effects of climate change have all contributed to persistently high levels of hunger and food insecurity around the world.
