This report evaluates the potential impact of the conflict in Ukraine on Syria’s increasing food insecurity. Food insecurity in the country has been gradually rising following a decade of conflict, economic and financial instability, and a severe drought that hit last year’s harvest. It demonstrates that without a resolution to the conflict, global wheat, oil, and energy prices are set to soar, affecting heavily dependent countries the most. Countries and regions like northwest Syria, which are already struggling, will need more help to both deal with and recover from the fallout.
