Food and Climate Change: The world on a plate
This powerpoint presentation sets out what we know about food and its contribution to greenhouse gas emissions, the options for emissions reduction, what is being done to tackle the problem, and the work of the FCRN.
While some of the food system challenges facing humanity are local, in an interconnected world, adopting a global perspective is essential. Many environmental issues, such as climate change, need supranational commitments and action to be addressed effectively. Due to ever increasing global trade flows, prices of commodities are connected through space; a drought in Romania may thus increase the price of wheat in Zimbabwe.
