The World Food Program says Sri Lankans are being forced to rely on coping strategies to keep food on the table.
In its “Remote Household Food Security Survey Brief” for August 2022, the UN’s food-assistance branch said around eight in ten households are regularly turning to food-based coping strategies such as sacrificing meals, borrowing food, and reducing the number of meals eaten.
It also noted that more than one-third of Sri Lanka’s population is food insecure amid the country’s worst economic crisis since its independence in 1948.
