“Investing in food security in the Sahel is also an investment in a peaceful and more stable future,” Graziano da Silva said. “There is a clear linkage between hunger and conflict; food security and peace in Africa. In the Sahel, we are seeing how food insecurity, hunger, and the dispute over natural resources causes conflicts. Hunger can both trigger conflicts and be a result of conflict. So we cannot treat food security as being separated from security and development as a whole.” – EU Commission President
