Drought 2022: hunger in a heating world
One third of Pakistan has been flooded. Crops and topsoil washed away; farming infrastructure destroyed. On the other side of the Arabian Sea, Somalia is experiencing its worst drought for 40 years with crops failing and livestock dying. Our climate isnít just changing, it has changed.
Climate change is fuelling hunger for millions of people around the world. Extreme weather events have increased five-fold over the past 50 years, destroying homes, decimating livelihoods, fuelling conflict and displacement, and deepening inequality.
