Emissions must be cut if we are to tackle hunger

Report
Oxfam

Countries across the world must play their fair part in cutting emissions if we are to prevent millions more people going hungry due to climate change, international agency Oxfam warns today.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) today opens its meeting in Berlin to finalise its landmark report on cutting global emissions. This comes just a week after it met in Japan, where governments acknowledged that climate change will have a bigger effect on food production than stated in the IPCC’s previous report seven years ago.
