Alliance to End Hunger Alarmed by Discontinuation of Black Sea Grain Deal in Ukraine

 WASHINGTON (July 17, 2023) The Alliance to End Hunger is deeply concerned by Russia’s decision to not back a continuation of the Black Sea grain deal with Ukraine. The July 2022 deal – which allowed critical grain exports during the Russia-Ukraine war – has been instrumental in staving off some of the impacts of the ongoing global food security crisis.

According to the United Nations up to 783 million people in the world currently face hunger. It is projected that nearly 120 million more people will be chronically malnourished by 2030 due to the pandemic and recent war in Ukraine. Disproportionate impacts of the loss of Ukrainian grains would be felt in some of the most famine-prone places in the world including the horn of Africa.

The Alliance to End Hunger calls on all parties – including the United Nations, Biden Administration, and Congress – to urgently address the ending of the Black Sea grain agreement and the possibility of increased global food shortages, price instabilities, and worsening hunger crises.
