Addressing Role of Climate Change in Food Insecurity

In honor of World Food Day, we highlight several .Earth web domain users who offer solutions

According to U.S. President Joe Biden’s recent statement regarding World Food Day, the world is facing an unprecedented level of food insecurity with more than 300 million people unable to access clean water, emergency medicine, shelter, and food without assistance.

In addition to the war in the Ukraine, a major drive of today’s food insecurity comes down to climate change. Rising global temperatures and sea levels are creating more heat waves, droughts, floods, cyclones and wildfires – making it difficult for farmers to grow food.

While this global problem seems insurmountable, every action – whether small or large – can help to address today’s food crisis. For example, a number of .Earth web domain users are coming up with innovative ways to counter food insecurity.

Here are some examples:

  • SYSTEMIQ.Earth: Last month, this organization published its “Reducing Emissions from Fertilizer Use” report, which highlights how the fertilizer sector and wider food system can address climate change. Learn more here.
