Food Supply Predictions

New report reveals which geographic areas' food supply will be most affected by global warming.

In a recent report by the Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security (CCAFS) initiative, researchers are able to pinpoint regions of the world where the food supply will be hit hardest by global warming. Large parts of South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, which are both already experiencing a food crisis, will be most affected by climate change. Populations in these areas are highly dependent on a local food supply for sustenance, and with many areas becoming drier, the report suggests that an entirely new farming system will need to be put in place. “We are starting to see much more clearly where the effects of climate change on agriculture could intensify hunger and poverty,” says Patti Kristjanson, an agricultural economist, in an article by BBC News.
