Climate Change and Resources - Facing new Challenges

Climate change - A new challenge

The weather is changing - A new challenge

Climate change represents a new challenge facing Welthungerhilfe: We are no longer fighting only hunger and poverty. Increasingly, people in developing countries are faced with the consequences of climate change. Accordingly, Welthungerhilfe is reacting to climate changes in its projects whilst also attempting to fight the causes of climate change.

Consequences for nutrition security

What do climate changes mean for people who are already starving or undernourished? Does climate change lead to more hunger in the world? 

Effects of climate change

What will happen?

Climate change causes extreme weather events. Droughts and heavy rains force people to flee.

Chance: Sustainability

How people adapt to the changing conditions

Climate change can scarcely be stopped now. So it means living with the consequences. Sustainability is the only option.
