  • Examples:Uganda carbon sequestration project displacing 17,000 small scale producersMekong Mainstream Dams
  • More ShocksThe world is experiencing more shocks and this is trend that is liable to continue. The Global Financial Crisis and the consequent emergence of the G20, the large food price hikes of 2007/8, the mega-disasters experienced in Haiti and Pakistan are all examples of these. The growing inter-connectedness of our financial, communication and social systems means that shocks in one part of the world are rapidly transmitted through a diverse set of channels to other parts of the world.
  • An example of climate change creating ‘shocks’ with the frozen Jet Stream winds being linked to Russian Fires and Pakistan Floods – adding to growing uncertainty

    11. 11. The 4 Challenges1. The production challenge – we must produce enough nourishing food for 9 billion people by 2050.2. The ecological challenge – we must do so whilst keeping within critical planetary boundaries for the use of land, water, atmospheric space and genetic resources.
    12. 12. The 4 Challenges3. The equity challenge – we must empower women and men living in poverty with the resources to grow or buy enough food to eat.4. The resilience challenge – we must manage volatility in food prices, and reduce vulnerability to climate change.
