Conflict remains one of the largest drivers of global food insecurity worldwide and the stressors this puts on the food system are numerous. As conflict is the largest driver of global food insecurity, the resources provided here strive to ensure that all Feed the Future Initiatives integrate conflict sensitivity. Conflict was responsible for roughly 72 percent of acute food insecurity worldwide in 2021. As many as 60 percent of the world’s 828 million hungry live in regions subject to war and violence. Conflict-affected areas are the frontlines in the global fight against hunger, and addressing food insecurity increasingly means addressing conflict, violence, and fragility.
