21 April 2020. Conflict- induced hunger is one of the greatest humanitarian challenges facing civilians in most conflict-affected countries.

Two years after the adoption of the landmark Security Council resolution 2417 (2018) evidence has continued to show that war and conflicts are one of the major driving forces behind food insecurity, taking a heavy and devastating toll on civilians, including women and children. This trend needs to mobilize all actors involved in conflict prevention and resolution to preserve the well-being of future generations.
