A new report by the World Food Programme (WFP) examines the impact of climate change on global food security. The report covers regional analyses (e.g. Asia, East Africa) as well as country analyses (e.g. Afghanistan, Philippines, Uganda).

The report „How Climate Change Drives Hunger – Food Security Climate Analyses, Methodologies & Lessons 2010-2016“ was launched by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in partnership with the Government of Sweden in November 2017. 

The risk of hunger could increase by up to 20 per cent due to climate change by 2050 unless increased efforts are made to enable the world’s most vulnerable communities to better adapt to extreme weather events such as drought and flooding.

Drawing on such findings by the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change, the report offers a review of multiple analyses into the impact of climate change on food security by WFP and partners.

Gernot Laganda, Director of WFP Climate and Disaster Risk Reduction Programmes, noted at the launch of the report that humanitarian organisations need to change their way of operation in the future due to the impacts of climate change.
