Secretary-General's remarks to the Opening Segment of the High-level Policy Dialogue of the Africa Dialogue Series 2022 [bilingual as delivered, scroll down for all-English]

Excellencies, Ladies and gentlemen,
I am happy to join you for this Dialogue Series, and commend your focus on nutrition and food security on the African continent.
For too long, nutrition, food security, conflicts, climate change, ecosystems and health have been treated as separate issues.
But these global challenges are deeply interconnected.
Conflict creates hunger.
The climate crisis amplifies conflict.
Economic insecurity is heightened by the pandemic and by inequalities in resources allocated for recovery.
