Peace and food security - Investing in resilience to sustain rural livelihoods amid conflict
Mar 2016

FAO has long been concerned about the impact of war on food security and on how hunger can be one of the drivers of instability and conflict but we also know that actions to promote food security can help prevent a crisis, mitigate its impacts and promote post-crisis recovery and healing. This booklet explains the relationship between peace, conflict and food security and FAO’s experience on the ground that shows how investing in food security helps fight hunger and builds peace.
