One of the goals of the alliance will be to overcome the consequences of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The G7 countries are creating a new Global Alliance on Food Security, which will, in particular, deal with overcoming the consequences of Russia’s war in Ukraine.
German Development Minister Svenja Schulze said on Thursday after a meeting with her colleagues in the “seven” that the goal is to better coordinate the efforts of donors and do everything so that emerging crises are not ignored.
According to her, the “Big Seven” will try to attract as many partners to cooperation as possible, including developing countries that can be engaged in deliveries.
“The alliance is really open, it’s not a closed club,” Schulze said.
The World Bank will participate in the implementation of the project.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has led to a sharp rise in food and energy prices. Both countries are major exporters of wheat, barley and sunflower oil.
“Now we need all the forces,” said the head of the UN Development Program Achim Steiner. – The question is, will we be able to achieve the coordinated work of all these forces?”
