Food Insecurity & Climate Change
The UK's Met Office and the World Food Programme have released an interactive map which explores food insecurity around the world under different climate change models. The map examines how food insecurity in developing countries could be affected by greenhouse gas emissions and how adaptation to climate change might also affect food insecurity.
The Food Insecurity & Climate Change Map allows you to select different levels of future global greenhouse gas emissions and/or the levels of adaptation to climate change. It then shows how these different scenarios could affect food insecurity in developing countries around the world. There are three different scenarios of future global greenhouse gas emissions which you can choose from, and three different scenarios of climate change adaptation levels.
The map allows you to view the predicted impact of your selected scenario on future food insecurity for both 2050 and 2080.
