About the Advocacy Playbook This tool was developed by the Alliance to End Hunger as part of a larger collaboration to ignite and catapult volunteering in the hunger space by creating a national call to action and providing training opportunities focused on strategic volunteer activities. The Alliance to End Hunger will accomplish these goals by increasing participation in advocacy actions that will inform and engage elected officials to champion an end to hunger. This Advocacy Playbook and associated webinars and trainings are a part of that effort. Make a difference in your community by participating in advocacy actions that will inform and engage elected officials in championing solutions to end hunger!
Corn growers had high hopes going into the planting season but the drought that began last spring hit the corn crop hard.
As a result, corn prices skyrocketed and corn has become scarce in some regions, forcing 20 ethanol plants around the country to halt production. Most are not expected to resume production until after corn is harvested in late August or September.
But the implications of a changing climate have a much broader impact on global food supply, according to a new report. The new report, which Oxfam released Monday, warns that climate change threatens to delay the fight against world hunger for decades.
The threat of climate change on food is much worse than the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimated in their last report in Oxfam, a global confederation of 17 organizations fighting poverty and hunger, analyzed whether the world is prepared to meet food demands in a changing climate.
The report's release comes just ahead of the publication of the next portion of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Fifth Assessment Reportwhich will focus on climate impacts, vulnerability and adaptation.
The report cites examples where extreme weather has already affected agriculture, such as the ongoing and historic droughts in Brazil and California. The latter produces nearly half of all fruits, nuts and vegetables grown in the U.
Oxfam also estimates that global food prices could double bywith a shifting climate responsible for half of that rise. And in the next 35 years, there could be 25 million more malnourished children under the age of five than there would be without climate change affecting food availability, said Coleman.
To understand just how vulnerable our global food supply is to climate change, Oxfam analyzed ten gaps that measured how prepared -- or unprepared -- 40 food-insecure countries are to tackle climate change impacts. Those gaps include the amount of money for adaptation, the availability of irrigation for crops and the level of access to agricultural research.
The report also notes steps that nations and individuals can take to reduce the impacts of climate change on world hunger and food. These include cutting greenhouse gas emissions and creating international agreements that address both climate change and hunger.MUNICH – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is deploying cutting-edge blockchain technology to make cash-based transfers faster, cheaper and more secure..
