It is critical to address food insecurity in protracted crisis contexts if the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2: Zero Hunger is to be achieved. This paper argues for a shift from a siloed to an integrated food system approach, building food system resilience in areas that are vulnerable to the impact of shocks (such as drought, conflict, market failure) and stressors (such as climate change, soil fertility loss, the increase in extreme weather events, political conflict, and instability) that threaten development outcomes. The paper specifically attempts to raise policymakers’ awareness of the reasons why hunger is on the rise again, what is the promise of a food systems approach, and what needs to happen in the aid architecture to enable practitioners to overcome current programming challenges in countries affected by protracted crises.
