Conflict, Natural Resources and Food Security


People in countries suffering from poverty, unequal distribution of resources and conflicts are particularly vulnerable to low food security. Population growth, climate change, reduced freshwater resources and crop losses are examples of challenges for food production. This has implications for food security in the world and can also worsen existing conflicts. Further more, access to, and distribution of, food is often limited in conflict situations. Examples of this can be seen in Syria and Palestine.

How can these issues be handled? Can conflicts related to food security be prevented? What can be learnt from the past? Lennart Båge will give a brief introduction on the complexity of food security, Helena Lindholm will speak of the situation in Syria and Palestine and Ngolia Kimanzu will provide practical examples from different parts of the world.
