Report on food security and climate change

The High Level Panel of Experts for the Committee on World Food Security have published a report on food security and climate change.

The report provides a now familiar analysis of the problem of food security and climate change, and the connectedness of these two issues.  It then makes a number of recommendations in regard to the following key areas:

  1. Integrate food security and climate change concerns
  2. Increase resilience of food systems to climate change
  3. Develop low-emissions agricultural strategies that do not compromise food security
  4. Collect information locally, share knowledge globally, and refocus research to address a more complex set of objectives
  5. Facilitate participation of all stakeholders in decision-making and implementation
