WFP Innovation Challenge grant

The climate crisis is one of the biggest problems facing the world today. It is, along with conflict and overall economic instability, the main reason why 811 million people suffer from hunger globally. And 189 million more would go hungry in a world that is warmer by 2°C. People who have the least resources to cope are frequently the most affected.

In developing countries, extreme weather events have doubled in frequency since the early 1990s. The Sahel region in Africa is warming up 1.5 times faster than the rest of the world. Rapid changes in temperatures threaten food security by hampering crop yield, fishing, and livestock production. We need to adapt today for a better tomorrow.
