BRIEFING

Achieving Food Security under Climate Change

Download PDF

Climate change is disrupting agriculture and food production across the world, while current food production practices are also major drivers of climate change in the first place.

While mitigation of emissions from the agricultural sector is essential to create a climate-safe world, this paper specifically focuses on exploring aspects of resilience-building to climate change in food systems in a global context, setting out risks and actions towards addressing these risks.

In the context of COP27 being hosted in Egypt in 2022, this paper draws in a focus on Egypt as a case study throughout to exemplify the risks to food security faced by low-and-middle income countries.

This policy working paper has been produced by the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology in Egypt, with contributions from the UK Universities Climate Network, through an academic collaboration ahead of COP27 in Egypt in 2022.
