Effect of climate change on food security


Melkamu Terefe* and Alemitu Worku

Extreme weather is affecting food security due to climate change, which lowers incomes and restricts access to food for urban dwellers. The effects of climate change on the availability of food would be startling. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to assess how climate change would affect global food security. Climate change can impair the world's ability to sustain adequate food production and generate nutrients that are affordable in agricultural systems in a number of different ways. We need to broaden our narrow focus from increasing agricultural yields and productivity to include the impact of climate change on the nutritional content of food crops in order to get a complete picture of how it will affect our global food supply. Proactive adaptation can improve capacities to deal with climate change by taking climate change into account in long term decision making and removing barriers to changing behavior in response to climate change.
