India’s rice embargo as a threat to global food security

India’s proposed rice export restrictions, potentially affecting 40% of the global rice supply, may have severe consequences for several African and Middle Eastern countries. Projected losses of up to 304 kg per capita, as seen in the case of Djibouti, pose a threat to food security. Indirect effects through production and further trade can impact the availability of a range of secondary products such as meat, eggs, sweeteners, or alcohol. For instance, Liberia’s losses over secondary products, excluding rice itself, accumulate to 5.2 kg per capita. While a diverse portfolio of import sources and domestic production can help compensate for losses to a certain extent, it cannot eliminate them entirely.
