Who cares of the impact on climate change on hunger and under-nutrition: a plea to the international community to ensure food and nutrition security for the most vulnerable in a changing climate
This paper discusses the impact of climate change on under-nutrition and current efforts in reducing hunger. It addresses the call to climate negotiators, governments and donors to focus their attention on the consequences of climate change on under-nutrition, and commit urgently to help the most vulnerable to adapt to an increasingly unpredictable climate and world. Thus this paper draws the following recommendations: (1) increasing financial support for nutrition specific and sensitive interventions; (2) increasing funding devoted to adaptation in the most at-risk countries, prioritizing actions for the most vulnerable groups, households and individuals; (3) prioritizing adaptation programs that include well-defined food and nutrition security objectives.
