Cultivating equality: Delivering just and sustainable food systems in a changing climate
This report (PDF) from Food Tank, CARE International and the CGIAR Research program on Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security (CCAFS) shows how inequality determines diets around the world and shapes the ability of farmers to adapt to climate change. Inequality determines who eats first and who eats worst, and how this shapes people’s ability to adapt to climate change. The report argues that solutions around food production are not enough, and demands more dialogue and action to address inequality in food systems. The report concludes with recommendations to actors like governments, private sector, donors and individuals: 1) prioritize women’s empowerment and integrate climate change in all approaches to food and nutrition security; 2) ensure small-scale food producers and women are included in policy decision-making on budgets; 3) commit to ambitious actions to tackle the climate crisis; 4) commit to scaling up of finance to address hunger and climate change; and 5) respect the rights of small-scale food producers and women.
