This report argues that our failure to cut greenhouse gas emissions threatens food security, which disproportionately affects the world’s poorest people.The report is based on research that models the impact of extreme weather on the prices of key international staple crops in 2030. The report notes that existing research considers the gradual effects of climate change, but does not consider extreme weather events, thus underestimating the effect of climate change on food prices.
