Climate Change Impacts on Global Food Security

Topics: Food and Agriculture, Homeland Security Theory Policy and Practice,

This report suggests that climate change could destabilize food systems, particularly in areas vulnerable to hunger and undernutrition, because of short-term variability in supply. It makes a case supporting the adaptation of a "climate-smart food system" that accounts for trade, stocks, and nutrition and social policy options beyond simply building agricultural resilience. It also outlines six key takeaways, aimed at policymakers, for the impact of climate change on food security moving forward.
