The intersection between climate change, food, and migration

Today, the global food system finds itself facing major challenges. Mainly, they relate to changing diets, climate change, persistent conflicts and crises, and anti-globalization sentiments, with implications at national, regional, and global levels.

Rapid urbanization and middle-class growth—resulting in changing diets—have been increasing pressure on food systems. At the same time, the growing impacts of climate change also threaten the agriculture industry, affecting productivity, prices, and food security.
