Description

Abstract:
A Briefing Paper prepared for an IPS Roundtable on Climate Change and Food Security Issues held on 13 November 2008.

The paper explores the global trends associated with food security and climate change and the linkages between them. This comes at a time of unprecedented international concern for global food security, against a backdrop of dramatically fluctuating world food prices. Underlying the food security issue is a trend of rapidly growing populations in many developing countries, and projected changes in food production dynamics associated with a warming and drying climate for many regions during the 21st century.
