An online research tool which examines how climate change may increase hunger vulnerability across the globe has been launched by the World Food Programme (WFP).

The Food Insecurity and Climate Change Vulnerability map shows how strong adaptation and mitigation efforts will prevent the worst impacts of climatic variations on hunger across the world.

It should help make people less vulnerable to food insecurity.

The tool has been launched on the margins of the COP21 climate change conference currently underway in Paris, France.

Cristina Silveiro asked WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin why the map is important.
