COP27 climate change summit: World leaders urged to act as report reveals 768 million are underfed

COP27 climate change summit: World leaders urged to act as report reveals
768 million are underfed. Institute for Economic and Peace says ‘existing
ecological challenges will only be amplified by climate change’ and
millions of vulnerable people are being failed by current efforts to tackle
it.

World leaders facing the threat of a global recession must not scrimp
on support for poorer nations with hundreds of millions of people at
increased risk of catastrophic ecological disasters, a leading think-tank
has warned. Threats posed by water scarcity, food stress, and natural
disasters mean that the number of undernourished people worldwide rose to
768 million last year, according to a report by the Institute for Economics
and Peace.

The think-tank’s Ecological Threat Report says that
“existing ecological challenges will only be amplified by climate
change” and millions of vulnerable people are being failed by current
efforts to tackle it. The report’s authors say negotiators at the UN
COP27 climate change conference, which starts in Egypt on 6 November, must
commit to finding a way to address these risks “quickly” or risk a
catastrophe.
