The climate crisis is a hunger crisis
Rising temperatures and extreme weather are having a huge impact on people who already live in some of the toughest places on earth.
We’re all seeing more and more extreme weather events like floods and wildfires. They destroy homes and crops. But what’s less well-known is that climate change has become a big cause of rising hunger around the world.
The climate emergency is a humanitarian emergency. Without change, 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.
Since 2008, nearly 175 million people in some of the poorest and most fragile countries in the world have been forced to flee their homes due to climate-related disasters — a number that’s growing year on year.
The painful fact is the worst consequences of climate change are faced by the poorest – the people who have done the least to cause the problem.
