REPORT+WEBINAR: Global Report on Food Crises 2021: Building resilience to prevent food crises and conflict

17 June 2021. Global Report on Food Crises 2021: Building resilience to prevent food crises and conflict. 

The 2021 Global Report on Food Crises (published by the Food Security Information Network for the Global Network Against Food Crises) finds that at least 155 million people experienced acute food insecurity at crisis level or worse — up about 20 million from 2019. Africa is disproportionally affected, with close to 98 million people facing acute food insecurity last year. Other parts of the world are suffering too, with Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria, and Haiti experiencing major conflict-related food crises.


This policy seminar focused on experiences and strategies that can both build food system resilience and help prevent conflict.

Introductory Remarks – Johan Swinnen, Director General, IFPRI
