Sustainable Development Goal 12.1.2 | Food security: Climate Change
All of School guide to support: Global citizenship [SCoT], Sustainable development [ScOT.1050] as well as Design and Technologies / Levels 9 and 10 / Technologies Contexts / Food and fibre production [VCDSTC057] and VCE Unit 4 Food issues
A person is food insecure when they lack regular access to enough safe and nutritious food for normal growth and development and an active and healthy life. This may be due to unavailability of food and/or lack of resources to obtain food. Food insecurity can be experienced at different levels of severity. (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, n.d.)
"Climate change, periodic modification of Earth’s climate brought about as a result of changes in the atmosphere as well as interactions between the atmosphere and various other geologic, chemical, biological, and geographic factors within the Earth system.... " ("Climate change", n.d.)
"Crop breeding techniques have come a long way in developing plants suited to Australian climates. But how far can we go? Will new technologies and research infrastructure keep pace with the need to make Australian agriculture more agile, more responsive and more resilient to the changes ahead?" (Van Lookeren Campagne, 2020)

"Since the start of the Green Revolution, the productivity of the global agricultural system has more than doubled, improving food security for a growing population and meeting dietary demands of an increasingly wealthy world. This astounding productivity has also imposed environmental costs. While global agriculture faces a number of challenges, the most surprising challenge to food security may come from agriculture’s impact on our climate." (Institute for the environment, n.d.)

"Farmers for Climate Action is challenging a common conception of the farming community. With farming contributing 13 percent to Australia’s carbon emissions, FCA gives support and advice to farmers looking to diversify income and regenerate their land in the face of a changing climate."

"Feeding livestock a seaweed supplement called FutureFeed could simultaneously help to secure global food security and fight climate change by reducing powerful greenhouse gas emissions." (CSIRO, 2019)
"Farmers are used to dealing with weather, but climate change is making it harder by altering temperature and rainfall patterns, as in this year’s unusually cool and wet spring in the central U.S. In a recently published study, I worked with other scientists to see whether climate change was measurably affecting crop productivity and global food security."

These pages provide concept definitions and subject overviews for researchers who want to expand their knowledge about scholarly and technical terms. Each synopsis provides a series of short, authoritative, excerpts from highly relevant book chapters written by subject matter experts in the field. These topic summaries are derived from Elsevier encyclopaedias, reference works and books.

This inspiring book describes how people are becoming more aware of the effect of their daily activities on the planet. Find out how more and more people are eating and living green by buying food grown locally, eating food that is organic, and even growing their own food. Many people are also building eco-friendly homes and choosing to live off the grid, which means they are creating their own, sustainable forms of energy instead of getting electricity from a power station. Discover how eating and living green is becoming more and more possible, and why this way of living could help build a sustainable future for the next generation.
"The price, quality and seasonality of Australia’s food is increasingly being affected by climate change with Australia’s future food security under threat, our new report has revealed. Australia’s food supply chain is highly exposed to disruption from increasing extreme weather events driven by climate change, with farmers already struggling to cope with more frequent and intense droughts and changing weather patterns." (Climate Council, 2015)
Sustainable Futures explores the links between population growth, diminishing resources and environmental challenges, and the implications for Australia's future. Written by leaders in their field, and based on presentations from the 2013 Fenner Conference on 'Population, Resources and Climate Change', this book is a timely insight into the intertwined challenges that we currently face, and what can be done to ensure a sustainable and viable future.The book identifies the major areas of concern for Australia's future, including environmental, social and economic implications of population growth; mineral and natural resources; food, land and water issues; climate change; and the obstacles and opportunities for action.Accessible, informative and authoritative, Sustainable Futures will be of interest to policy makers, students and professionals in the fields of sustainability and population growth.
"Climate change is a serious threat to global food security, sustainable development and poverty eradication. Nuclear techniques offer substantial advantages over conventional techniques." (International Atomic Energy Agency, n.d.)

"In early May 2017 the Global Alliance for the Future brought together over 250 experts and leaders from the local to the global to gain deeper insights into the connections between climate change and food systems, to craft visions of the food systems we need today and tomorrow, and to chart potential pathways to get there. These are the voices of some of those leaders." (Global Alliance for the Future of Food, 2017)
