DUBLIN--The "Hunger - Nutrition - Climate Justice" conference in Dublin, Ireland has seen two days of stimulating debate and discussion between high-level policy makers and grassroots groups about the challenge of maintaining food security for vulnerable communities facing climate change that is dramatically affecting their lives.
Groups comprising communities as diverse as Tanzanian pastoralists and Caribbean fishermen and fisherwomen have aired their views and voiced their concerns in discussions with heads of humanitarian agencies, and government officials.
The joint goal has been to draw on the knowledge and experiences of those living on the frontline of climate change to inform future policy-making. The information gathered in Dublin will provide valuable input for the deliberations over the post 2015 sustainable development goals.
