Update On The CGIAR Research Response to Covid-19 / December 2020

Global Food and Nutrition Security

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a global health crisis and massive disruptions to economies and livelihoods. As the global leader in agricultural research, CGIAR immediately took action to analyse and counter the pandemic’s potentially devastating impact on food security and nutrition worldwide, particularly in low-and middle-income countries(LMICs), first through the existing research programs, and then with the establishment of a COVID-19 Hub in July to develop additional research and coordinate system-wide efforts. This report details that research response to date.
