Climate change threatens to put back the fight to eradicate hunger by decades – and our global food system is unprepared to cope with the challenge.

Hunger is not and need never be inevitable. However climate change threatens to put back the fight to eradicate it by decades – and our global food system is unprepared to cope with the challenge.

In the face of this challenge, Oxfam has analysed how well the world’s food system is prepared for the impacts of climate change.

Our briefing paper, Hot and Hungry: How to stop climate change derailing the fight against hunger, assesses ten key factors that influence a country’s ability to feed its people in a warming world – these include the quality of weather monitoring systems, social safety nets, agricultural research and adaptation finance.
