STORYLINE:

Ahead of the World Food Day celebrated every October 16, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) called on countries to address the food and agriculture in their climate action plans and invest more in rural development.

During an event today (14 Oct) in Rome, FAO’s Director-General José Graziano da Silva said, “FAO’s vision is that climate change, extreme poverty and hunger must be addressed all together. And sustainable agriculture is key to doing so. Agricultural activities that are resilient and result in a sustainable management of natural resources can deliver the transformative change we so urgently need.”

The theme for World Food Day 2016 -Climate is changing. Food and agriculture must too-, highlights food security as one of the biggest issues related to climate change.

According to FAO, to feed a growing population, ensure the wellbeing of ecosystems and reduce emissions, agriculture and food systems will need to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change and become more resilient, productive and sustainable.

Also speaking at the event, Macharia Kamau, the UN Special Envoy on El Niño and Climate Change, said “the message that I want to leave with you today is that the 2030 agenda, at its core, is an agenda about fighting poverty and ensuring that we have no hunger and that food is available to all of us, as a basic human right for all of us. And nothing threatens that more than climate change as we see it.”

The theme for World Food Day 2016 resonates with the crucial time in which the day will be observed, just before the next UN Climate Change Conference, COP 22, from 7-18 November 2016 in Marrakech, Morocco.

World Food Programme’s Executive Director Ertharin Cousin stressed “climate change is not waiting. Not waiting for us to develop the right agreements. Climate change requires that we work together to perform and deliver the results that are necessary. Because climate change is not waiting, neither can we.”
