Climate change, agriculture and food security | FAO report 2016
In adopting the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement, the international community is now committed to making transformative and sustainable changes in the face of an unprecedented challenge: ending hunger and poverty while addressing the impacts of climate change. That political commitment now needs to be turned into concrete action.
In this context, this edition of The State of Food and Agriculture presents evidence on the current and future impacts of climate change on agriculture and food security. Based on this evidence, the report goes on to describe transformative policies and institutions that can facilitate an effective response to climate change.
Climate change is already affecting agriculture and food security. Without urgent action, millions more people will be at risk of hunger and poverty.
