Save the Date: Conflicts are increasing in number and complexity, hampering efforts to end hunger by 2030. Conflict is today the leading cause of hunger - with more than half of the 815 million hungry people in the world living in countries affected by conflict. With millions in Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen on the brink of famine. At the same time, hunger drives conflicts – hunger fuels longstanding grievances and disputes over land, livestock and other assets. The United Nations World Food Programme’s Nordic Office invites you to join the debate “Conflict & Hunger” which focuses on the nexus between hunger, conflict, migration and peace. In the panel experts from Danish Church Aid, Danish Institute for International Studies, International Organization for Migration and the United Nations World Food Programme will offer perspectives and potential solutions on the global hunger crisis.
