About 1.8 million people in Africa could be pushed into extreme poverty due to the impact of economic problems caused by the crisis in Ukraine, said the African Development Bank (ADB).

It was revealed on Wednesday in Ghana's capital, Accra, which is hosting ADB's annual assembly, this time around the theme Promoting climate resilience and a just energy transition for Africa, Maghreb Arabe Presse reported.

The coronavirus pandemic and the Russian-Ukrainian conflict threaten to leave a lasting mark on Africa. According to the authors of the ADB report, the negative trend in this area will continue in the second half of 2022, as well as in 2023.

In addition, in 2022, another 1.8 million people could plunge into extreme poverty on the African continent due to economic problems caused by the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. 

ADB is convinced that Africa urgently needs an anti-crisis policy, including the provision of subsidies, to mitigate the effects of rising food and energy prices.
