Climate Change and Food Security Framework Document
Climate change has affected on all four aspects of food security: food availability, food accessibility, food utilization and food systems stability. This document by FAO provides background information on the interrelationship between climate change and food security and ways to deal with the new threat. This paper takes a broader view and explores the multiple effects that global warming and climate change could have on food systems and food security. It also suggests strategies for mitigating and adapting to climate change in several key policy domains of importance for food security. Rising sea levels and increasing incidence of extreme events pose new risks for the assets of people living in affected zones. The changes in these natural events have threatened livelihoods and increased vulnerability to future food insecurity in all parts of the globe. Such changes could result in a geographic redistribution of vulnerability. It can relocalise responsibility for food security. The potential impacts of climate change on food security must therefore be viewed within the larger framework of changing earth system dynamics and observable changes in multiple socio-economic and environmental variables.
