Climate change, hunger and children’s futures

A dangerously under-discussed consequence of climate change

Our Climate Change, Hunger, and Children’s Futures report shows that if current trends continue, more than 320 million people could find themselves on the brink of starvation by 2030.

This impending disaster is fuelled by the impact climate change is having on agriculture. 

Extreme weather events are leading to cycles of drought and flooding, which greatly diminish agricultural success. This is especially disastrous for communities that are too financially poor to fill the gap caused by crop failure. And it's children who suffer worst of all. 

Our report analyses the link between climate change and the risk of starvation, discusses the long-term consequences of malnutrition on children and communities, and gives those children a medium to discuss what they need from global leaders.
