Climate Hunger: news and commentary in real time

Climate and hunger are intricately related, sometimes in obvious ways, sometimes in ways that are hard to immediately see. This website will document climate changes that are happening now around the world, and explore the intersection of climate change and hunger. Hunger was on steep decline for a decade, but the pandemic, climate change, the war in Ukraine and rapid inflation have radically changed that. Hundreds of millions of people are being for into severe poverty (less than $1.90/day) and tens of millions are on the brink of starvation. Climate change is causing droughts, floods, cyclones, hurricanes, wildfires and other disasters that are displacing tens of millions of people. These people have immediate need of food, essentials, clothing, and shelter.

The war in Ukraine has captured the attention of the traditional donor countries so pleas for funding for hunger relief in Africa and Asia are not being fulfilled leaving people, children, women and men to die and live in squalid camps or scrounging out a living in a degraded environment.. We will be one of many voices trying to get immediate action on both hunger and climate change.
