Reading Café is similar to a book club idea, except we read and discuss articles of “current affairs”, not politics! No worries!

Next article titled “Food catastrophe, fixing that is everyone’s business”. Protected content

The war is disrupting food supplies. Russia and Ukraine contribute about half the cereals imported by Lebanon and Tunisia; for Libya and Egypt the figure is two-thirds. The two main wheat producers, China and India have been impacted by the extreme temperatures and lack of rain, which caused delayed planting last year. This dire situation calls for our attention, which crops being impacted most? Will this drive us to rethink our food consumption patterns? Is there a scope for substitution? I strongly believe collective visions will allow us to fix this, but how?
