Plenary session:
Venue: King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre, Philadelphia - G1 - Ground Floor
Abstract:  The relationship between peace, conflict and food security is historic and well documented. The threat of hunger is a powerful driver of instability, anger and violence, while actions to promote food security can help prevent crisis, mitigate its impacts, and promote recovery, healing and growth. But sustainable and equitable access to food for all is becoming increasingly challenging as consumption patterns and dietary expectations change rapidly. Further, the relationship between global food… (more)

Abstract:  The appalling and relentless conflict in Syria has tested regional and global resilience to an unforeseen level and has shown trans-border resilience mechanisms to be severely lacking.
