Risks of extreme weather to global food system

The global food system will be increasingly vulnerable to extreme weather according to a group of academics, industry and policy experts. ‘Extreme weather and resilience of the global food system’ brings together evidence of the likely impacts on food production of extreme weather. The report, published by the Global Food Security Programme, concludes that there is a growing risk of major shocks to production, with the efficiency of the global food system now contributing to its vulnerability. The authors call for action to improve the resilience of the global food system.
