Does armed conflict lead to hunger – and vice versa? Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough to eat – many of them as a consequence of war or armed conflict. Countries with the highest hunger levels tend to be those engaged in or recently emerged from war. This year’s Global Hunger Index explores the interrelations between war and hunger – and we would like to invite you to add your voice.

Write a blog on the topic, let us know about it, and we will add your piece to our link compilation.

Blogathon: Call for submissions – who can take part?

Have you worked in war zones? Are you a human rights activist? Do you work with refugees, or have you had to leave your home country due to armed conflict yourself? Are you a scientist conducting research in the area?

We can’t wait to read your contributions. However, we don’t want to limit the participants to experts. If you are a blogger and are interested in the topic, get involved.

How to take part:

  • Write your article about the topic “war and hunger“ and publish it until 30/10/2015 on your blog.
  • Link back to this welcoming post on one of our blogs: IFPRI, Concern or Welthungerhilfe.
  • Share your article on your social media channels using the hashtag #GHI2015.
  • We will compile all submitted articles and link back to your posts from our blogs.
  • Drop us a quick email to notify us about your blog: We check all submissions to make sure they are not against our netiquette. We welcome a broad range of opinions, but will not tolerate any form of offensive, discriminatory, sexist or racist content.
