Food security in armed conflict has two sides: first of all the availability of food in the warzone and the surrounding areas. Historically speaking famine has often been used as a weapon of war. There is a strong correlation between food prices in an affected warzone and the lethality figures. The other aspect is the secondary effects of armed conflict on uninvolved states. Aside from the pressure to choose a side, their dependency on one of the fighting states might very well stifle their food supply, for instance. This harms a vast number of people that are not involved in the conflict. A recent example is the consequences of the Ukraine conflict on grain prices in Africa. The Council should consider both the short-term effects in warzones as well as long-term solutions for uninvolved states.
