Climate Change Puts World’s Poorest At Great Risk Of Undernourishment

December 1, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
A USDA report written by 31 U.S. and international experts warns that climate change is likely to seriously harm global food security and hamper progress on reducing malnutrition around the world, especially among the poor and people living in tropical regions. The scientific assessment, released during the COP-21 Paris Climate Conference, identifies the challenges facing farmers and consumers in adapting to changing climate. Climate change is likely to cause disruptions in food production and a decrease in food safety, which in turn leads to food shortages and higher food prices. Under one scenario posed by the authors, continued increases in greenhouse gas emissions would increase the number of people at risk of undernourishment by 175 million by 2080.
