Hoover Institution: The Humanitarian Crisis In Sudan And The Looming Threat Of Famine


The Hoover Institution hosted a presentation on the current crisis in Sudan: 

"Russia's invasion of Ukraine has disrupted food production and exports and caused a spike in food prices, exposing the fragility of global grain supply. Now, as Sudan, Africa's third-largest country by territory, teeters on the brink of chaos, a humanitarian crisis of unimaginable proportions is taking shape, including the possibility of mass starvation. Within a decade, we have gone from the optimistic prospect of abolishing famine for good to a world of resurgent hunger crises. Alex de Waal, a leading authority on Africa and the history of modern famine, surveys the developments in Sudan and the worrying trends concerning world hunger and explores potential solutions."
