Climate Change & Food Security
Environmental sustainability is crucial to the work of Islamic Relief since the environment is linked with poverty. In fact, many communities living in poverty across the developing world live in the most ecologically vulnerable environments. Climate change has hit those communities the hardest. This has had a harmful impact on access to goods and services, as well as livelihoods. It also keeps communities in poverty and can often intensify food security issues.
Islamic Relief is interested in research addressing the challenge of climate change and food security by:
- Increasing understanding of Islamic faith teachings on climate change & food security
- Supporting communities to adapt to the impacts of climate change
- Understanding the impact of climate change on food security and possible solutions
- Building resilience to climate-related disasters
