Food security is typically caused by three main factors: environmental disaster, conflict, and social, political, or economic shifts. In 2022, we find ourselves in a perfect storm of all three. While some of these factors may be alleviated in 2023, their effects will take time to work through. We examine the potential solutions to alleviate current food insecurity and prevent or lessen the severity of future occurrences, looking at four categories: social, technological , public sector, and financial/economic solutions.
