Climate change and its impacts are a key driver of global food insecurity. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts an increase in droughts and flood disasters into the future. Threats to food security become more likely as well as nutrient losses in crops which could trigger negative impacts on nutrient uptake. Through the Global Project on Food Security and Resilience Strengthening, GIZ aims to improve the nutritional intake and resilience to hunger crises by promoting multi-sectoral and multi-level approaches. Unique was selected to analyze the current and long-term impacts of climate change on nutrition; namely availability, access, and utilization of food; and overall stability of food security. The four target countries of this assignment are India, Malawi, Madagascar and Burkina Faso.

  • Analysis of current impacts of climate change on the nutritional situation of target countries
  • Assessment of long-term impacts of climate change on food security and social protection systems
  • Catalogue of climate adaptive measures that are in place or planned by selected countries
  • Identification of climate-related challenges that have not yet been addressed
  • Identification of additional measures that can be taken to mitigate the effects of climate change
  • Comprehensive desk review and interviews with select national and international institutions/experts
