CEB: Humanitarian security and social stability 23.02.2017

Although not necessarily obvious at first sight, with a crisis now hitting the real economy and virtually all spheres of society, the world as a whole could rapidly become a much more dangerous place to live in.

Food prices remain volatile and may spike again as droughts and floods and climate-related events affect harvests.
