This report reviews current knowledge of the effects of climate change on hunger. It summarizes knowledge from global studies completed and provides an overview of actions that can be taken to address the challenge.

Its authors assert that in the context of climate change and the risk of hunger, food access and food production are the most important areas of focus. They call for moving from crisis response to crisis prevention, for example by mainstreaming disaster risk reduction throughout national development programmes; and scaling up social protection systems as a core element of climate adaptation policy to contribute to reducing vulnerability to climate change and other risks. They call for investing in giving farmers access to knowledge and innovation, markets, assets and risk management.
