Food insecurity is likely to increase under climate change, unless early warning systems and development programs are used more effectively. 
Markets, climate change, and food security in West Africa.
Food price fluctuations, which will be exacerbated by climate change, make West African food security even more tenuous.
Smallholder Farm Households' Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate-induced Food Insecurity
Smallholder farm households seem to have no alternative in addressing climate-induced food insecurity, but to adapt their livelihood systems to the changing climate condition.
Food Security and Climate Change
Climate change may potentially disrupt progress toward a world without hunger. Today, a clear and consistent global pattern is perceptible of the different impacts of climate change on crop
Climate Change and Food Security: Threats and Adaptation
Abstract Food security is at risk from climate change. In fact, climate change and its drivers already affect food production through increased temperatures, changed precipitation patterns, extreme
Food security outcomes under a changing climate: impacts of mitigation and adaptation on vulnerability to food insecurity
The results show that vulnerability to food insecurity is projected to increase under all emissions scenarios, and the geographic distribution of vulnerability is similar to that of the present-day; parts of sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia are most severely affected.
The environmental food crisis : the environment's role in averting future food crises
This is a new rapid response assessment report released by UNEP warns that up to 25 per cent of the world's food production may become lost due to environmental breakdown by 2050 unless action is
Climate change as a driver of food insecurity in the 2007 Lesotho-South Africa drought
It is shown how a fragile agricultural system in combination with a large trade-dependency on a climatically connected trading partner can lead to a nonlinear response to climate change, which is essential information for building a climate-resilient food-supply system now and in the future.
Responses for Ensuring Food Security in the time of Climate Change 1
Climate change is caused by global warming. It refers to the average increase in global temperature, and has become a megatrend that will lead to significant changes in future society. The UN

• In many cases, areas with changing climate are coincident with zones of substantial conflict, indicating some degree of association; however, the contribution of climate change to these conflicts


Prioritizing Climate Change Adaptation Needs for Food Security in 2030
Results indicate South Asia and Southern Africa as two regions that, without sufficient adaptation measures, will likely suffer negative impacts on several crops that are important to large food-insecure human populations.
Climate science and famine early warning
Increased African capacity for rainfall observation, forecasting, data management and modelling applications is urgently needed if creative coping strategies are to be devised in response to climate change and increased climate variability.

Earlier famine warning possible using remote sensing and models
Remote sensing allows scientists to detect slowly evolving natural hazards such as agricultural drought. Famine early warning systems transform these data into actionable policy information, enabling
