Strengthening food supply chains can play a central role in breaking the vicious cycle of conflict, undernourishment, and forced migration. An IFPRI issue post examines how integrating forcibly displaced and conflict-affected people into food systems can help them rebuild their lives, reduce one potential source of conflict, and benefit local economies. This blog post complements IFPRI’s 2020 Global Food Policy Report on inclusive food systems.
