This year's The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World report has been collectively prepared by FAO, IFAD, UNICEF, WFP and WHO. The report highlights the links between climate change, environmental degradation, migration and food insecurity. As a result of the increase in conflict and climate-related shocks, such as droughts and floods, food security will be impacted.
The report mentions how a new WFP study found that countries with high levels of food insecurity and armed conflict have the greatest outward refugee migration. According to the study, refugee outflows increase by 1.9% with each extra year of food insecurity.
