What are the most important issues facing food security in a world impacted by climate change? How can the global research world, civil society, governments and businesses step up to the challenge?

Join a discussion about the 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. In 2015, governments will aim to agree a new sustainable development framework that includes a set of longer-term Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a future climate change agreement under the United Nations Framework Conventions on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and a post-2015 framework to address disaster risks. Collectively, these processes provide a unique opportunity to fundamentally shift course towards global and national climate-resilient development.

Post-2015 actions must promote food and nutrition security in the face of climate change if we are to shift course towards long-term sustainability. The six issues to be discussed at this event are critical to success.

The event will bring together a wide range of participants from civil society, research, government, and the private sector for interactive discussions and debates.
