Conflict, migration and food security

The policy brief Conflict, migration and food security published by FAO and IFPRI, highlights the vicious cycle that often develops between food insecurity, income shocks, and conflict. Conflicts tend to affect rural populations in particular because they are often fought in rural areas, disrupting livelihoods, agricultural production, food distribution networks, and leading to forced migration, which often continues even after the conflict ends. The brief presents several policy recommendations to help prevent conflict and to address some of the underlying causes of forced migration.
