In Brief 1/2019: Climate Change Causes Hunger
The “Fridays For Future” movement has sparked a wave of political action. Germany is discussing carbon pricing, and cities are declaring climate emergencies, but that is not enough for impoverished people in the Global South. Climate change has been a tangible reality in their lives for a long time, pushing them deeper into hunger. They need our support as they adapt to these circumstances. For our part, we have to reform our policies in the areas of forestry, agriculture, consumer behaviour, and energy and transport policy.
