In this episode, we explore the relationship between peace and food security. For today’s story, we gave FAO communications officer Karina Coates a recorder to tape her visits to two FAO projects in retaken areas of Iraq. We asked her to help us better understand the impacts conflict in the region has had on agriculture and how FAO is helping farming communities regain stability. Later in the episode, Lucca Russo, an FAO expert on resilience-building, gives some examples from around the world that show why supporting farmers is so key to preventing post-conflict zones from slipping back into war.
