At the Paris climate summit last December we asked governments to increase their financial commitments to help vulnerable countries cope in situations like this, and while they promised to do so, they failed to set strong enough targets. This food crisis shows clearly what happens when we fail to invest enough in helping communities adapt to climate change and to grow and buy enough food in a warming world.
Right now, governments from across the world are meeting again in Morocco. They need to invest more money to help the world’s poorest communities adapt to a changing climate.
Because if we don’t act now, the cracks will continue to grow.
