The Climate Crisis
Food systems are responsible for over one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions, while the livelihoods of producers—farmers, herders, foresters, and fishers—are increasingly threatened by climate change. The Global Food and Water Security Program (GFWSP) examines the relationship of climate change to migration and conflict and proposes solutions for producers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to a changing climate.
This webpage collects GFWSP’s work toward such solutions. From expert panels with UN climate experts and U.S. senators to technical reports on climate-smart agriculture, it analyzes the global, regional, and country-level implications of climate change for places where food security is most vital and elusive.
