Almost a billion of us go to bed hungry every night. Not because there isn't enough, but because of the deep injustice in the way the system works.
Besides, wild weather and unpredictable seasons are changing what farmers can grow and is making people hungry. Food prices are going up. Food quality is going down. Soon, climate change will affect what all of us can eat. For nearly a billion people in poverty, more extreme weather and more disasters mean more hunger.
Another future is possible, and we can build it together. Over the coming years, decisive action around the world could enable hundreds of millions more people to feed their families and prevent catastrophic climate change from destroying their (and our) futures.
Climate change. Poverty. Hunger. It’s all the same fight.
