Stop Gaza’s Famine

Only two famines have been formally confirmed in the twenty-first century; Gaza is on the cusp of becoming the third. After six months of war, millions of civilians face the onset of famine as Israeli aid blockages and military conduct have made robust humanitarian action impossible. The IPC system—the global process for assessing food crises—warns that famine will set in imminently if the humanitarian situation does not significantly improve. Deaths due to starvation have already been reported.

On April 10, 2024, Refugees International hosted a virtual event with leading experts who provided first-hand and expert accounts of conditions in Gaza, the imminent famine, and how to reverse course before more people lose their lives in this man-made disaster.
