During a meeting on the links between food and security, Guterres said: “Without immediate action, millions of people will reach the brink of extreme hunger and death.”

The UN chief said more than 30 million people in a host of countries are “just one step away from a declaration of famine.”

“Climate shocks and the Covid-19 pandemic are adding fuel to the flames,” he said.
