Madagascar is almost as large as Germany and Poland put together. The tropical island nation is home to a population of around 28 million. Shockingly, the majority of these people suffer from poverty and hunger. More than 81% of the population currently lives beneath the national poverty line (World Bank). In the 2022 Global Hunger Index, Madagascar is the only country with an alarming GHI score (38.7) that is not experiencing conflict. The country’s food insecurity is driven by consecutive years of drought brought on by global climate change, which is pushing areas in the south of the country to the brink of famine. Madagascar’s economy, which shrank significantly after a five-year-long political crisis, depends primarily on agriculture (vanilla export) and, to a lesser extent, on tourism. As a result, the livelihood of most Malagasy is severely threatened by the effects of climate change.
