THE IMPACT OF THE PANDEMIC ON FOOD SECURITY AND AGRICULTURAL LIVELIHOODS: RESULTS OF A MONITORING STUDY IN COLOMBIA
The global pandemic of COVID-19 has generated profound effects that have led to the deterioration of livelihoods and food security in different countries of the region, including Colombia. A recent assessment carried out by the FAO through telephone surveys with statistical representation at the national level, demonstrates the impact on the quality of life and minimum conditions of subsistence of households given the multiple shocks presented by the pandemic and the social context (national strike) that the country faced during the months of June to August 2021. The study exposes which factors most influenced the deterioration of livelihoods and the subsequent deterioration of food and nutritional security (SAN), and of what in this way, it is necessary to recognize agri-food systems and their effective functioning, as a vital element to guarantee livelihoods and limit poverty.
