What climate change means for feeding the planet

This report from Caritas Internationalis brings together the concerns of Caritas organisations confronted with the effects of climate change on the livelihoods of smallholder farmers.

Caritas internationalis | February 2014

The report is divided into two sections. The first section "Understanding today's challenges" provides a theological reading of food, a definition of key terms and explains the connections between climate change and food security, placing current and future debates in the context of sustainable development.

The second section of the report "Structural issues affecting the link between food security-climate change" examines the issues that together with climate change, threaten poor people's right to food such as agro-fuels, agro-business, land tenure, water management etc.
