For the first time in over a decade hunger is on the rise. Worldwide malnutrition is expected to increase by 50% by 2050.
In Mali alone already one in three children are experiencing stunted growth due to malnutrition. That means that in every class of 30, 10 children have had their growth stunted. Can you imagine what that figure could be by 2050?
Mali is seeing an increase of temperature, drought and flooding. Along with the desert expanding (desertification) it is becoming hard to grow food and keep livestock alive, all due to climate change.
However, Mali not only is feeling the effects of climate change but also conflict.
