Conflict is a main driver of the recent increase in hunger around the world and of forced migration. Hunger also contributes to conflict.

The challenges we see today are not new to people of faith. Vulnerable communities are part of the sacred stories highlighted in scripture. Famine and vulnerability of women (Ruth 1-4), political instability (1 & 2 Kings), ethnic oppression (Exodus 1:8-16), and religious persecution (Acts 8) have affected people throughout the ages.

This resource outlines guiding principles for policies that can address conflict, fragility, and hunger.
