Our study examines the macroeconomic effect of the COVID 19 pandemic on food security in the COMESA region. The study adopted a pooled mean Autoregressive Distribution Lag model (ARDL) to estimate the impact of macro-economic factors and food insecurity in the face of the COVID 19 pandemic in the select COMESA countries.
Our results reveal a significant long-run relationship between food insecurity and food inflation, food trade, and COVID 19 registered cases in the COMESA countries.
