Breaking the Cycle Between Conflict and Hunger: Working Towards Sustainable Peace and Zero Hunger

On May 24, 2018, the Security Council unanimously endorsed Resolution 2417, which has paved the way for addressing conflict-induced hunger. In line with the Secretary-General’s call for scaled up and coherent efforts to sustain peace, a comprehensive response is needed to respond to situations of severe food insecurity, addressing both immediate needs and tackling the root causes of severe food insecurity.

Co-hosted by the Netherlands, the United States, the European Union, Sweden, and the Rome-based UN food agencies: The Food and Agriculture Organization, the World Food Programme and the International Fund for Agricultural Development, this side event aims to examine ways in which Resolution 2417 can be operationalized and partnerships to achieve peace can be strengthened.
