A continued disagreement among governments over who should chair the WTO’s farm trade negotiations overshadowed talks in the global trade body’s regular committee on agriculture this week, sources said

At the launch of the Global Report on Food Crises 2017, Daniel Gustafson, the Deputy Director General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, warned that 108 million people are in “food crisis” around the world. Daniel Gustavson joined the FAO in 1994, serving in Africa and South Asia. Before assuming his present role, he was the director of the organisation’s Liaison Office for the US and Canada. Gustavson spoke with EURACTIV.com Development Correspondent Matthew Tempest. The message of today’s report seemed to be summed up in the words that ‘famine is back’, especially looking at South Sudan, Somalia and north-east Nigeria.

Brexit encompasses not only a dramatic shift in economic and political ties in Europe but also in Africa where the UK, through its membership of the European Union was able to strengthen rrelationships with several nations on the continent. Following the UK’s Leave vote on June 23rd, African currencies dipped. Stocks and bonds also plunged. Due to their positions as the UK’s largest African markets, Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa are among the prominent African States to be impacted by the UK’s move out of Europe. A lot of negotiations may have to take place as most of the trade agreements the UK has with African countries were negotiated through the EU. Inevitably, an end will come to some agreements.
