Climate change can already be felt in many places. And poor people in developing countries particularly suffer from the negative impacts, such as water shortages, rise in sea levels, extreme precipitation and storms. This is because climate change aggravates their already existential problems, for instance in subsistence farming. They also have the worst prerequisites for facing up to new challenges or even making use of the rare positive changes.
Welthungerhilfe helps people in developing countries to secure food for their families, to escape poverty and to protect themselves against threatening natural events.
