How can we prevent the health crisis from causing a food crisis?

It has been observed around the world for the past few weeks: the coronavirus pandemic raises fears of a food shortage.

In France, in the United States, as in many African capitals, we have seen a rush on the supermarkets. Everyone wanting to build up a stock, completely useless, because there is more than enough to feed everyone. In addition to citizens’ fears, there are logistical supply difficulties, lack of arms for crops in Europe for example, plus the willingness of some countries to restrict their exports.

All these disturbances worry international organizations: WHO (World Health Organization), the WTO (World Trade Organization) and the Food Organization of the United Nations, FAO. All three have warned this week of the risk of a global food crisis.

How to prevent it? How can we ensure that the main exporters of wheat and rice maintain the same level of exports?
