Climate change is likely to disrupt food production in many regions. This will have serious consequences for local livelihoods – particularly those dependent on farming, fishing and herding. Others will also be affected, as the risk of public unrest and civil conflict intensifies when food prices and availability become more volatile. Climate change impacts may hence undermine global progress in achieving SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) and SDG 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions).
