Russia - Ukraine Conflict could induce a Global Food Crisis

The war in Ukraine has disrupted the food supply chain of the world which was already struggling due to the pandemic for the last two years. Multiple countries like Turkey and Indonesia have stopped the export of grains and oil because they relied heavily on the Russian supply of grains. This has resulted in scarcity and price surge in food items. Scientists from NASA Goddard Institute of Space Sciences have warned that apart from this human-induced crisis, any extreme weather event can send the world into a food crisis.
