An estimated 925 million people suffer from world hunger.  Scientists agree that climate change is a major contributing factor to the current spike in food prices.  Increasing temperatures, weather disasters, and dwindling water and energy resources serve as a constant threat to food production. In the past month, this hot topic has featured in the New York Times, the BBC, and a report from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Tune in to DARA’s latest podcast on climate change and agriculture based on the findings of our 2010 Climate Vulnerability Monitor.
