Feed the Future Fact Sheet: Climate Change and Food Security
Climate change is a critical challenge for food production around the world. As greenhouse gas concentrations rise, global temperatures are increasing, precipitation patterns are changing, and oceans are rising and becoming more acidic. These shifts are already affecting agriculture and food security, and will become more severe. In addition, decisions about where and how to grow food can either accelerate or help put the brakes on climate change.
Feed the Future is working in concert with the U.S. Global Climate Change Initiative to develop strategies and undertake research to help food producers and actors throughout the food system both reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change so that food security can be increased despite changing climate patterns.
