Unnecessary wars not only set back development, but also increase the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance, and there is also a food problem.

British Ambassador to the United Nations, James Kariuki, said on May 29 this year that 18.6 million people need humanitarian assistance, three years after the 2021 military coup.

"We discussed the humanitarian problem in Myanmar in May last year. The number of people in need of humanitarian assistance has increased from 17.6 million to 18.6 million in the past 12 months. There are 3 million internally displaced people. Last year it was 1.8 million.”

He was speaking at the UK-sponsored Arria-formula conference, which included members of the UN Security Council and non-members.

"This year, more than 13 million people in Myanmar have a severe shortage of food, and children are likely to be forced into armed groups or forced into marriage to reduce the burden on their families without getting the nutrition they need to grow and develop well."

These can be said to be the result of internal conflicts. British economist Paul Collier once said that no matter what kind of conflict throughout human history, it has given birth to poverty and hunger.

He also cites the fact that during World War II, more people died from starvation or starvation-related diseases than from combat.

If there is food insecurity in a conflict, it happens. A fire is just a spark that can ignite. But when the food is not enough, the social, When various factors such as political and economic crisis are motivated, conflict starts to arise. After the conflict, there is a need for humanitarian aid and food problems.
