Sustainable Food and Nutrition Security under Changing Climatic Conditions
Basic principles for core strategic statements and approaches to practical action
Climate change, global megatrends and their resulting negative effects pose enormous challenges for mankind in the 21st century. (2012)
These challenges have to be faced. Already now, almost one billion people are suffering from hunger, while another three billion are under- or malnourished. It is estimated that the world's population will increase to approximately nine billion by 2050. The challenges of food security at a time when natural resources are shrinking due to a rapidly growing and commodity-hungry world population will have differing regional impacts and endanger already marginalised population groups.
