No end to hunger without "ambitious" climate action

17 November 2015

World hunger won’t end unless “ambitious action” is taken to address the causes and effects of climate change.

That’s according to a senior expert at the World Food Programme (WFP).

The United Nations says there are 795 million hungry people in the world, 98 per cent of whom are in developing countries.

The international community is gathering in Paris, France in December at a UN conference in the hope of agreeing a universal deal on climate change.

Stephanie Coutrix has been speaking to WFP’s Richard Choularton.
