Sustainable Food Security Through Climate Resilience
Climate change threatens the livelihoods of billions of people worldwide and exacerbates hunger, especially in rural areas of the Global South. Neglecting climate change mitigation and adaptation violates the human right to adequate food for present and future generations.
Adaptation must therefore focus on sustainable food and nutrition security. Crucial for this are technical adaptation measures and favorable social and institutional frameworks. The measures' viability presupposes local population groups' participation in planning and implementing adaptation measures.
At the upcoming climate conference in Bonn in June and at COP28 in Dubai in December, the German Federal Government must maintain attention to the issue of climate change adaptation while dealing with the dominant topics of climate finance and phasing out fossil fuels.
