Abstract: Humanity suffers catastrophic effects from war, particularly in terms of lives and livelihoods. War is a subject that has been studied extensively in history, but it is still largely unexplored in the domain of logistics. To address this gap, this thesis examines how war between Russia and Ukraine affects the world's food supply chain and how international sanctions have led to increased food insecurity. The study conducts an analysis of the recent war between Ukraine and Russia due to the fact that both of these countries are exporters of essentials like gas, oil and food grains to many countries. To do so, this survey assesses the effect of the conflict on the global financial system and how this resulted in global inflation and specifically in rising consumer prices, energy and commodity prices as well as food prices. The paper concludes with the challenges of the impact of the Russia Ukraine conflict that the whole world has to face; challenges such as food insecurity and malnutrition.
