Food insecurity and climate change

Sustainable agriculture has become a universal concern at present times. Food security and climate change are inextricable. Therefore due to climate change and degradation of natural resources, it has become inevitable for the smallholder farmers in the global south to have sustainable agricultural resources. The annual meeting of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) was held recently pointed the same problem and the need to find a quick solution.

Food security and climate change are inextricable.

With the increase in population there is an urgent need to ensure food security. However, in its effort to find a solution for sustainable agriculture and ensure food security, environment friendly technology should be used. Therefore, climate-smart technology should be in use. In this regard, the Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Program (ASAP) is initiated which will help in assisting funds for the climate-smart and sustainable investments for the poor smallholder communities.

Food insecurity and climate change is no more a regional problem but it has become the most urgent global challenges to be solved. There are more mouths to be feed with each passing day and for that food production should be strengthened. Most importantly, this should be done in a sustainable way.
