7 facts on climate change & food production for sustainable development
On the frontline of climate change, effects are real and measurable. As climate change evolves, food and agriculture need to follow suit. Rising temperatures, changes in rainfall, erratic weather patterns and the prevalence of pests and diseases resulting from climate change threaten agricultural productivity and therefore undermine global food security.
Simultaneously, the world’s population is growing steadily and expected to reach 9.6 billion by 2050. To meet this growing demand, agriculture and food systems must adapt to the adverse effects of climate change and become more resilient, productive and sustainable.
In celebration of this year’s World Food Day theme ‘Climate is changing. Food and agriculture must too,’ here are 7 facts around climate change and some of the things FAO is doing to mitigate its effects on agriculture.
