Dire consequences of the war on global food, energy and financial markets could upend millions of lives

13 April 2022, New York – The war in Ukraine is setting in motion a three-dimensional crisis – on food, energy and finance – that is producing alarming cascading effects to a world economy already battered by COVID-19 and climate change, according to the new findings of the Global Crisis Response Group (GCRG).

And the most vulnerable people around the globe cannot become collateral damage in yet another disaster for which they bear no responsibility.”
