Facing the Food and Water Challenges of the Future -

Extreme weather due to climate change is already affecting agricultural yields and food security around the world. In 2010, wheat prices soared in response to the shrinking of Russia’s wheat harvest after a drought and the country’s subsequent ban on wheat exports.

By December 2010, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the U.N.’s Food Price Index had surpassed its 2008 peak; 2011’s food prices were the highest ever recorded. The rising price of food is one reason why there are one billion hungry people in the world.

Interesting insight from State of the Planet…
