  • Assessing and Mitigating the Food Security Consequences of COVID-19 in China

    The proposed research will identify the immediate and longer-term impact of COVID-19 on household food security in Chinese cities, and will assess and improve fast-evolving social and policy countermeasures to enhance food security. Our research objectives are to: 1) Investigate the immediate food security challenges resulting from China’s quarantine measures, unstable food supply, and fear of shopping in two COVID-19 affected cities (Wuhan and Nanjing); 2) Assess how COVID-19 has impacted food security in Nanjing by longitudinal comparison with the baseline survey data collected through Hungry Cities in 2015; and 3) Synthesize and assess policies established and community response in addressing food security challenges and promote effective measures by engaging local stakeholders.
