What a 2ºC and a 4ªC warmer world could mean for global food insecurity

As many scientists are warning it is becoming increasingly unlikely that the world will be able to remain within the warming threshold of 2 degrees, decision-makers need to be able to plan to adapt to a world with higher levels of global warming. WFP helps inform these adaptation decisions, as part of the European Commission scientific research project known as High-End cLimate Impact and eXtremes (HELIX). Check out this poster to understand the impacts of extreme climate change on global food insecurity in a warmer world, and how WFP is helping countries to address these impacts.
