Overview

Climate change has an ever increasing effect on food security. Harvests can be ruined by rapidly changing weather patterns which lead to droughts and floods. However, new tools developed by FAO help countries understand if their food supply will be affected by weather. These tools include:

 climate change   The Climate Change Impact Assessment Tool

 crop monitoring box   The Crop Monitoring Toolbox

  •  The Ex Ante Carbon-balance Tool provides ex-ante estimates of the impact of agriculture and forestry development projects on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and carbon sequestration, and their effect on the carbon balance.

The “Improved Global Governance for Hunger Reduction” programme is funded by the European Union with additional resources provided by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The programme is managed by FAO and collaborates with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Programme (WFP)”
