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 online index, that allows users to explore the impact of adaptation and mitigation efforts in tackling the effects of climate change on vulnerability to food insecurity.

More information are reported in a Met Office article about the food insecurity website
