Infographic: Charting the History of Agriculture & Climate Change

Infographic: Charting the History of Agriculture & Climate Change | green infographics | Scoop.it

A new infographic that maps the progress of the agricultural sector in addressing climate change throughout the history of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) negotiations has been launched on the sidelines of this year’s climate summit in Doha.


“Agriculture is already being hard hit by climate change and the outlook is even worse. However there are options for adaptation, and some of these even bring mitigation co-benefits,” said Bruce Campbell, Director of the Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security research program.
Agriculture supports over 1 million of the world’s rural poor, yet is responsible for 80% of overall deforestation and 31% of total greenhouse gas emissions. Increasing agricultural yields and improving farming techniques are some the ways that could help reduce its overall contribution to climate change.
In addition to tracking the developments and effects climate change has had on global farming communities, the infographic also calls for the creation of a Work Program on Agriculture under the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technology Advice (SBSTA) – a scientific advisory group to the UNFCCC. A new work program could document and share knowledge of improved practices to inform decision-making on agriculture and climate change to the UNFCCC’s Conference of the Parties.


The infographic was created by Farming First, a coalition of farmers associations, engineers and scientists, in partnership with the CGIAR Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security research program (CCAFS) and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT).

No Kid Hungry: Campaign to End Childhood Hunger

No Kid Hungry: Campaign to End Childhood Hunger | green infographics | Scoop.it
The thought of children going to sleep hungry anywhere in the world is tough to swallow.

People may think that hunger is a problem which resides firmly in the hands of third world countries — but they’re mistaken. America has a problem too. America has the food and programs in place to end childhood hunger, but they are up against a lot: the stigmas and embarrassments that surround hunger, the challenges presented by access to healthy food, and the struggle to connect children with the resources they need to thrive.
In 1983, actor Jeff Bridges founded the End Hunger Network, a nonprofit organization dedicated to feeding children around the world. It works with the entertainment industry and partners to produce and support media projects to end U.S. childhood hunger. They have recently partnered with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry national campaign to end childhood hunger in America by 2015. This newly formed partnership will help make this goal even more attainable...
