Feeding the World in a Changing Climate
Over the last two decades, 200 million people have been lifted out of hunger. Yet according to the World Bank, nearly 800 million people around the world still experience food insecurity, and an estimated 3 million children die each year due to causes related to under nutrition. Climate change has the potential to increase food insecurity for those living on the margins, as it increases the frequency and intensity of droughts, floods, and storms, destroying crops and livelihoods. Furthermore, experts warn that we will need to double world food production by 2050 to keep up with the growing population growth, most of which will take place in developing countries. Come join the conversation about the work being done in developing countries to increase food security in developing countries to mitigate and adapt to a changing climate.
