Climate change and variability: What are the risks for nutrition, diets, and food systems?

Climate change and variability: What are the risks for nutrition, diets, and food systems? uses a food systems approach to analyse the bidirectional relationships between climate change and food and nutrition along the entire food value chain. It then identifies adaptation and mitigation interventions for each step of the food value chain to move toward a more climate-smart, nutrition-sensitive food system.

The study focuses on poor rural farmers, including one population especially vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change on nutrition. Although the report does not explicitly exclude overweight and obesity, it focuses primarily on undernutrition because this nutritional status is currently more prevalent than over-nutrition among the populations targeted by the authors.
