Climate Impacts on Food Security and Livelihoods in Asia


Climate Impacts on Food Security and Livelihoods in Asia

One of the most significant impacts of climate change is the potential increase in food insecurity due to changes in the productivity of agricultural land, seasonal variability, and higher magnitude of disasters. Climate change interacts with the different drivers of food insecurity to create new risks (but it can also create opportunities) and can affect all dimensions of food security. This report presents a summary of the latest available evidence of how climate change and food security interact, with specific examples from the Asia region.
