Food Security & Livelihood

-In the world today, almost a billion of us go to bed hungry every night. Not because there isn't enough food for everyone, but because of the deep injustice in the way food is produced and accessed.

-Enhancing sustainable food production, response to the climate crisis and unfair access to natural resources impact on people’s ability to grow and buy food. They are particularly harmful for women, who work in agriculture more than any other sector and produce much of the world’s food.

-Increasing hunger driven by the worsening and uncertain climate condition. It’s harder to grow food in the face of ravaging locusts, floods, more intense droughts, and rising sea levels. Climate change disproportionately affects people in vulnerable situations and threatens their rights.

-Climate change also aggravates pressure on land, alongside the growth in demand for natural resources. Vulnerable communities find themselves competing with powerful interests for control over the land, water, forest and energy resources, that they depend upon for survival.
