Impacts of Climate Change on Nutrition Security Worldwide
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.
