Report: The Ukraine war and food security

Consequences for Norway's partner countries

“The war in Ukraine is causing disruptions in global food supplies, with grave consequences for many developing countries”, writes Stein Sundstøl Eriksen, Research Professor at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) and Co-Director of the NCHS.

In this NUPI report, “The Ukraine war and food security: Consequences for Norway’s partner countries” Eriksen examines how Norwegian partner countries’ food security is affected by the war in Ukraine.

The report finds that while Norway’s partner countries are largely self-reliant in regards to food, critical issues caused by the war include increased prices for food fertiliser and energy, increased risk of political instability and conflict, as well as cuts in aid. The report concludes with some key recommendations for Norway.
