Investing in a Food, Nutrition
& Climate Secure Future
Food and climate are inextricably linked.
Climate change and food security – two of the world’s most urgent challenges – are inextricably linked. In a world that is 2°C warmer, an additional 189 million people will face hunger. In a 4°C warmer world, an additional 1.8 billion people will go hungry.
Yet with science, we can transform food systems from being a source of emissions to a sink for carbon, from fueling environmental degradation to supporting regeneration, and from reducing biodiversity to protecting it.
With Science we can.
