The problems of food security and climate change are interrelated.  CIDSE therefore looks at the links between food insecurity and climate change, as well as at the degradation of ecosystems and economic recessions.

Severe climate conditions, such as floods and droughts, are already exacerbating the food insecurity of the world’s poor. In order to put forward a more holistic approach, CIDSE intends to show how small-scale, sustainable agriculture can be a key element of a comprehensive solution to climate change.

Whilst we believe in the urgency of reversing the divestment in agriculture during the last 30 years of structural adjustment policies, it is also vital that agricultural investments are sustainable and benefit the poor without harming the environment.
