World leaders seek to remove barriers to food


NEW YORK—World leaders have called for more money to fight hunger and to lift barriers to food and fertilizer trade to address what they fear will be a prolonged period of food insecurity related to Russia’s war in Ukraine.

At a special food meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, representatives from the European Union, Africa and the Americas sought to draw attention to signs that the global food supply may face even greater challenges in the future. They cited climate change, rising energy and fertilizer prices and crop failures linked to conflicts, including the one in Ukraine.
