Can we step up to the challenge of ensuring food security in a world impacted by climate change? A new paper explores the issues. Join the discussion online and at a special seminar in Lima

Earlier this month, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its summary report, which clearly shows that climate change is already impacting food security around the world

A new discussion paper highlights six major issues that development and humanitarian actors need to address in the coming years if the IPCC’s worst case scenarios are to be averted. Find out how enhancing nutrition security, giving decision-making power to farmers, and ensuring equitable outcomes for women are critical to if we are to shift course towards long-term sustainability. Download the paper: Stepping up to the challenge – Six Issues facing global climate change and food security.

The paper is co-authored by CARE International, the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA).
