Food Security Under Threat
Experts gathered in Stockholm says
that climatic conditions have threatened the global food security,
“We are getting to a point where we are getting more water, more rainy days, but it’s more variable, so it leads to droughts and it leads to floods,” Sunita Narain, the head of the Centre for Science and Environment in India.
“That is leading to huge amounts of stress on agriculture and livelihoods,” she said, adding that “climate change is making rainfall even more variable.”
Narain was one of around 2,500 experts from 130 countries gathered in Stockholm for the 20th edition of the World Water Week, which opened Sunday and is set to run until Saturday.
