HELIX is an EU-funded collaborative research project assessing the potential impacts of climate change. Scientists from 16 organisations worldwide have worked together to develop a number of future scenarios of the natural and human world as a consequence of 1.5°C, 2°C, 4°C and 6°C global warming.

At HELIX we are now communicating our results to decision makers and the public to help understand what kind of climate change impacts we wish to avoid and make adapting to our changing climate more understandable and manageable.

Climate change could raise food insecurity risk

Our research suggests that weather extremes caused by climate change could raise the risk of food shortages in many countries. We looked at the difference between global warming of 1.5°C and 2°C and found that – despite increased vulnerability to food insecurity in both scenarios – the effects could be worse for most countries at 2°C. […]
