Climate Change and the Food System

Climate change will impact the food system, but we can all do our bit to reduce the effects that will be felt. Watch Dr Tom Powell explain more.

Welcome to Week 2! This week we’ll explore another Sustainable Development Goal – Life on Land – and how it relates to climate change solutions.

In this video, Dr Tom Powell introduces you to some local ways to improving food security. This is important because climate change is a big threat to food security and global agriculture, but we can make important local contributions that have far reaching effects.

Once you’ve watched the video, let us know in the comments what solutions we’ve missed! What action can be taken at a local scale to improve global food security in the wake of climate change? What works in your locality?
