LONDON – Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud and UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak are set to co-host the Global Food Security Summit in London on Monday, November 20th. This summit represents a critical juncture in the ongoing efforts to address the global food security crisis.
According to Somali National News Agency, the summit aims to unite world leaders, experts, and policymakers to develop a unified strategy for combatting food scarcity and nutritional deficiencies worldwide. With a focus on sustainable solutions, the summit will particularly address challenges faced by regions affected by climate change, conflict, and economic instability.
Somalia, which is currently facing severe food insecurity, plays a pivotal role in this initiative, partnering with the UK to leverage their combined experiences and resources.
