Climate Change and Food Security in the Context of the Cancun Agreements Submission by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to the 14th session of the AWG‐LCA, in accordance with paragraph 1 of the Bali Action Plan. Recently food prices have once again shown an upward trend, kindling fears of another food price crisis along the lines of that experienced in 2007-2008. FAO recently signaled that its global food price index hit a new record high in February. Greater attention is now being given to climatic changes as one of the drivers of these price increases. FAO indicated that some food prices have more than doubled this year due in part to weather problems in key producing countries, which curbed global production of wheat, corn and sugar. ìOn a global level, increasingly unpredictable weather patterns will lead to falling agricultural production and higher food prices, leading to food insecurity,î the UNFCCC Secretary stated in an address delivered on 15 February 2011.
