Millions of people globally, including in some African countries, risk dying from conflict-driven hunger, with the Covid-19 pandemic and climate change making the situation worse, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned. UN agencies have appealed for $5.5bn (N$ 82.4 bn) in emergency mobilisation for those most affected by hunger. Guterres says at the end of last year, more than 88-million people were suffering from acute hunger due to conflict and instability.
