While it has long been known that conflict drives food insecurity, the Dangerously Hungry report shows that the inverse is also true: Food insecurity drives conflict. This report captures the tremendous growth in food-related instability literature in the last five years. It finds the drivers of food-related instability can be grouped into three main categories: the climate crisis, resource conflict and economic shocks. Food insecurity alone rarely produces conflict. Instead, people must also be motivated to choose conflict over peace. Those motivations can be grouped into three distinct categories: desperation, grievance or governance.
