This website allows you to explore how different scenarios of global greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to climate change could change the geography of food insecurity in developing and least-developed countries. By altering the levels of future global greenhouse gas emissions and/or the levels of adaptation, you can see how vulnerability to food insecurity changes over time, and compare and contrast these different future scenarios with each other and the present day.
The Foreign Office today sent a 10-man consular Rapid Deployment Team (RDT) to Mexico from the UK, to assist British nationals in distress in the aftermath of Hurricane Wilma. The team consists of Foreign Office consular officials, plus staff from the British Red Cross and International SOS.
This is in addition to the 15-strong consular team already on the ground in Cancun, which includes the British Ambassador to Mexico, the Consul General, the UK's Defence Attache, and a consular team drawn from across the region.
