In the Armenian village of Aragatsavan, residents had struggled for more than two decades to secure clean drinking water.

The community’s Soviet-era reservoir was contaminated, and leaked more than 70 tons of water a day. It was limiting access to water for 5,600 residents; 120 families had no water at all.

During a town hall meeting facilitated by Counterpart International, the community agreed it had to take action.

This bulletin provides information on price changes for the most commonly consumed staples and the potential impacts of these changes on the cost of the food basket. Staples contribute 40 - 80% of energy intake for the most vulnerable population groups in developing countries. Therefore, even a small increase in staple food prices has a high impact on overall food consumption, especially when the food basket is composed of very few staples.

How does climate matter to the world's hungry?

Erratic weather affects agricultural productivity, contributing to chronic hunger and food shortages. Lack of food makes the longer-lasting sustainable solutions we all hope for harder to reach.

When food is scarce, subsistence farmers may sell livestock; exchange land for food; sell firewood, leading to further deforestation; consume seeds; take children out of school; migrate in search of food or work.

The poorest and most vulnerable communities are heavily dependent on rain-fed agriculture and water resources.
