The Ukraine war and threats to food and energy security
Researchers at Chatham House have published a report investigating the war in Ukraine and threats to food and energy security that arise from it. Presenting the socio-economic backdrop to the war – including existing pressures on food and supply chains – the research outlines the long-term effects that the conflict will have on global systems, even if the conflict itself is resolved within a relatively short time period.
The crisis has highlighted the complexity of global supply and distribution networks and points to long term ripple effects, or cascading risks, before examining the effects that policy and market responses might have in mitigating or exacerbating those risks.
