Madagascar is almost as large as Germany and Poland put together. The tropical island nation is home to a population of around 30.3 million. Shockingly, the majority of these people suffer from poverty and hunger. 10.2 million people live with an inadequate food supply. In the 2023 Global Hunger Index (GHI), Madagascar has the second-highest GHI score, which, at 41.0, is considered alarming. 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.
