A new report from CARE International, Food Tank and CCAFS – Cultivating Equality: Delivering Just and Sustainable Food Systems in a Changing Climate – shows how inequality determines who eats first and who eats worst, and how this shapes people’s ability to adapt to climate change.
The report argues that solutions around food production are not enough, and demand more dialogue and action to address inequality in food systems.
“The impacts of climate change are felt most by those least responsible for the problem and with the least capacity to adapt. Efforts to address hunger and malnutrition in the context of climate change must address inequality in food systems at all levels,” says Tonya Rawe, Senior Advisor for Policy and Research for CARE International. “The first step is to make sure we get a just climate change agreement from the UN climate talks in Paris this December.”
