dc.description<html> <head> <title></title> </head> <body> <p>In July 2020 Oxfam warned that by the end of this year more people could die from hunger related to the COVID-19 pandemic than from the disease itself. But the response of the&#160; international community to global food insecurity has been dangerously inadequate.&#160;</p> <p>The threat of &#39;COVID famines&#39; and widespread extreme hunger is setting off alarm bells in the&#160; international community &#8211; but so far, sluggish funding is hampering the efforts of humanitarian agencies to deliver urgent assistance to people in need. More than 55 million people in the seven worst-affected countries are facing severe-to-extreme levels of food insecurity, some approaching famine-like conditions.&#160;&#160;</p> <p>Oxfam is raising the alarm that famine is imminent and not enough is yet being done to stop this hunger crisis. It is also calling for urgent action to build a fairer and more sustainable food system. Years of neglect mean that millions of people remain unnecessarily vulnerable to shocks like COVID-19, climate change and conflict.&#160;</p> </body> </html>en_US
