How communities are adapting to the impact of climate change on food
Climate change is the single biggest threat to our chances of winning the fight against hunger.
Everyone has the right to enough food to eat. But extreme weather and unreliable seasons are playing havoc with farming, destroying harvests, pushing food prices up and food quality down.
Farmers are struggling to cope and for nearly a billion of the world’s poorest people – those who did the least to cause climate change – it’s getting even harder to feed their families.
Here are some examples from around the world, where farmers and families are fighting back, adapting to the changing climate, to protect their crops and livestock.
It’s time to demand justice
The world needs meaningful action from governments and big business to reduce harmful emissions, protect poor farmers and ensure there’s enough food for everyone. Join farmers and families now to demand the right to food in a changing climate.
