World Food Day

The world’s poorest are being hit hardest by climate change. If we strengthen the resilience of smallholder farmers, we can guarantee food security for the planet’s growing global population and also reduce emissions.

This year, the Zero Hunger Run will take place in Rome on World Food Day, Sunday 16 October. You can participate either in a 10km competitive race or a 5km non-competitive walk or run through the historical centre. If you want to take part, please register here

Our climate is changing. And we want you to tell us why food and agriculture must too. There are two ways you can do this. Design a poster or produce a video on the World Food Day theme to enter the 2016 contest

Climate  change threatens  the  sustainability  of  capture  fisheries  & aquaculture  development  in  marine  &  freshwater environments. Impacts occur as a result of acidification, changes in sea temperatures and circulation  patterns,  the  frequency  and  severity  of  extreme  events,  and  sea-level  rise  and  associated  ecological changes.
