A United Nations (UN) expert on food rights has urged the international community to act to prevent a looming crisis threatening several millions of people in west and central Africa.
UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Olivier De Schutter, points out that, “We must not wait until people are starving in order to act. The world must respond immediately to avert a full-scale food and nutrition crisis."
Speaking during his visit to Ghana, De Schutter warned that the crisis will be triggered by drought, poor harvests and rising food prices.
