Borlaug 101 | The ONE Campaign

SUMMARY 
COVID-19 has dramatically affected the way we live. For many people all over the world, the impact simply does not stop at work or the ability to see people but on the spillover impacts of the economic impact, including a rise in hunger. Even before the virus, a population more than twice the size of the United States went to bed hungry. As COVID hits the most vulnerable economies, the impact of the pandemic translates into poverty as millions of people’s sources of income fall due to job losses. But if governments and businesses take action now, they can prevent the COVID-19 pandemic from becoming a hunger pandemic.
