Experts from the World Food Programme have worked in collaboration with Met Office climate scientists to devise a measurement of food vulnerability to climate change. The Food Insecurity and Climate Change index is a measure of how vulnerable to disruption a country’s food security system is as a result of flood and drought events. The results of this research have been incorporated into an interactive...
