Prof. Dr. Hynek Roubík just published their work in Globalization and Health (one of the most prestigious journals, which is pioneering and transdisciplinary journal that situates public health and wellbeing within the dynamic forces of global development).
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has had far-reaching consequences on various aspects of human life, and food security is no exception.
