World Food Program's Effort to Reduce Conflict in Ethiopia's Somali Region

 The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute published in April 2022 a report titled "The World Food Programme's Contribution to Improving the Prospects for Peace in Ethiopia" by Farah Hegazi, Vongai Murugani, Grazia Pacillo, and Peter Laderach.  

The report assesses the contributions of WFP Ethiopia's climate adaptation and risk management programs to encourage peace in Ethiopia.  It concludes the programs can potentially contribute to conflict reduction in the Somali region of Ethiopia through reducing herders' mobility during drought and improving natural resource management.
