Global Crisis Response Group
In line with global efforts to prevent multiple famines and food crises, 4SD Foundation’s Strategic Director, Dr David Nabarro, was appointed by the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres at the end of March 2022 as:
- A member of the Global Crisis Response Group (GCRG) Steering Committee
- Co-Leader of the GCRG Food Workstream
- A member of the GCRG Task Team
In the UN Secretary-General’s opening remarks to the Steering Committee of the GCRG in March 2022, he said, “We need to bring developed and developing countries together to find global solutions. Because this is a global crisis. No country will be able to insulate itself from a meltdown of the global economic system; from the domino effect of hoarding food or fuel; or from the long-term impact of increased poverty and hunger.”
Since the appointment, 4SD Foundation has provided the comprehensive support needed to help ensure that the response group is as effective as possible.
