Global commission charts pathway for achieving food security in face of climate change
Date:11/16/2011

>

The release of the Commission's "Summary for Policy Makers" was timed to inform pivotal, upcoming meetings on climate change, including the UN climate conference in Durban, South Africa from November 28 to December 9 and the Rio+20 Earth Summit next year. "Efforts to alleviate the worst effects of climate change cannot succeed without simultaneously addressing the crises in global agriculture and the food system," said Dr Bruce Campbell, director of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security, which convened the independent commission in February 2011. "The commission's invaluable contribution is to provide scientists and policy makers with the most authoritative, evidence-based action steps to date to achieve global food security." The Commission's detailed final report will be issued in 2012.

The Commission brings together senior natural and social scientists working in agriculture, climate, food and nutrition, economics and natural resources from Australia, Brazil, Bangladesh, China, Ethiopia, France, Kenya, India, Mexico, South Africa, the United Kingdom, the United States and Vietnam.

Creating a safe operating space for people on this planet

"There is a strong risk we will live on a food-insecure planet in the future," said Commissioner Dr Marion Guillou, President of the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA), "and we need to reshape food access and consumption patterns to ensure basic nutritional needs will be met." Today, a billion people are malnourished while millions suffer from chronic disease due to over-consumption. World population will grow to an estimated 9 billion by 2050 and diets are shifting towards higher consumption of calories, fats and animal products. Global demand is growing for food, fodder and bioenergy crops, and food prices are rising.
