2009 - Climate Change and Hunger - Responding to the Challenge
Climate change is a defining challenge of our times. Its impact and implications will be global, far-reaching and largely irreversible.

Natural disasters are becoming more frequent and intense, land and water are becoming more scarce and difficult to access, and increases in agricultural productivity are becoming more difficult to achieve.
