Climate change: a hunger crisis in the making

Climate change is driving a hunger and malnutrition crisis around the world. These impacts are disproportionately felt by poorer countries who contribute least to the problem.

The climate emergency is a humanitarian emergency, and it is predicted to get a lot worse.

In all scenarios, there will be food crises globally due to the warming climate and biodiversity loss, extreme weather events will become more frequent, and growing seasons will be shorter.

The climate crisis is already driving devastating hunger.

The great injustice of this is that the people worst affected by climate change – going hungry, missing out on healthy childhoods, dying even – are the least responsible for causing it.
