Launching our Evidence Review on Climate Change & Nutritious Foods

Climate change is the biggest global health threat of the 21st century, deepening already alarming rates of global malnutrition.

As a result, malnutrition is expected to be the number one cause of all additional climate-related child mortality.

There is increasingly strong recognition across the climate, health, and food systems communities that nutrition must be included in the global response to the climate crisis to avoid the needless deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and achieve mitigation targets, but a deeper understanding of the challenge and impactful solutions is essential as we move from advocacy, to commitment, and into implementation.

Without a clear understanding of the evidence – and the gaps, there is a risk that nutrition-blind climate policies will have an even greater negative impact on global hunger and diets than the direct impacts of climate change itself.

Our new Evidence Review on Climate Change & Nutritious Foods summarizes how climate change will continue to affect the production and availability of nutritious foods, and considers data-driven solutions to mitigate emissions from food systems while protecting human health.
