NEW Delivering Universal Health Coverage 2030 Health: A political choice

Ilona Kickbusch, Eds.: WHO, (2019)

At least half of the world’s population does not have full coverage of essential health services. Health expenses push more than 100 million people into extreme poverty each and every year, forcing them into terrible choices that no one should ever have to make: Buy medicine or food? Education or health care? These stark statistics make the case for universal health coverage compelling.

NEW IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change , (2019)

An IPCC special report on climate change, desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management, food security, and greenhouse gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems As more frequent droughts and floods threaten the global food supply, humans are increasing their demands on water and land, The New York Times reports. Data from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report: • 500 million people are living in areas that are becoming desert. • Soil is depleted at 10X-100X the rate it’s being formed. • More than 10% of the global population is undernourished. Major threats include the risk of “multi-breadbasket failure”—simultaneous food crises on several continents—and migration triggered by food shortages. Good News/Bad News: Catastrophe can be avoided, but it would require massive changes to agriculture, food systems and behavior. A Key Action: Eat less meat. Cattle production is driving deforestation, consuming huge amounts of water, generating methane and causing other impacts, notes Nature.

Hunger Strike: The climate and food vulnerability index (August 2019)

Christian Aid, (2019)

Top 10 hungriest countries contribute just 0.08% of global CO2. -Climate & Food Vulnerability Index shows 10 most food insecure countries emit less than half a tonne of CO2 per person -Burundi is the world's most food insecure and smallest per capita emitter -The average Briton generates as much CO2 as 212 Burundians -IPCC blockers Russia, USA and Saudi some of the worst offenders As scientists of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change meet in Geneva this week to publish their Special Report on Climate Change and Land (August 8), a new report by the development charity Christian Aid shows that climate change is having a disproportionate impact on the food systems of the country’s least responsible for causing the climate crisis. The IPCC is expected to show how climate change will affect global food supply, spiking prices and reducing nutrition. It is also likely to recommend that countries will need to drastically cut emissions if global food security is to be protected.
