Madagascar: on the frontline of a climate-driven hunger crisis

The effects of climate change are ravaging the southern districts of Madagascar, a country that produces just 0.01% of global emissions. The frequency and intensity of droughts have risen sharply in the last few years – having a devastating impact on the health of people living there.

Between conflict and malnutrition

In Ituri, Democratic Republic of Congo, ongoing fighting between different communities has destroyed homes and livelihoods – causing widespread hunger.
