This paper presents evidence on the relationship between conflict and food security. To improve upon existing cross-national studies, I exploit sub-national variation in the Colombian municipalities during the first decade of the XXIst century. Using a fixed effects model, I find a negative correlation between conflict intensity and the agricultural growth domestic product. The results are robust to different measures of conflict intensity.
