Hilal Elver is a law professor who has served as the U. N. Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food. She points out that Madagascar is the first country to have experienced famine caused entirely by climate change, but now COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine are also causing food insecurity. Many different aspects of hunger (e.g. economic, human rights, agricultural innovation, nutritional, governmental regulation, equal access to markets) should be considered in a unified way if famine is to be prevented.
