Report on how climate change threatens food supplies, food security, and micronutrient status. It examines climate change-nutrition discourse and the central role of micronutrients, arguing that climate emergencies are nutrition emergencies. The impacts and disruptions associated with climate change—including the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide, greater land degradation, more extreme weather, and rising sea levels, to name just a few—are jeopardizing people’s micronutrient status. In addition, at the same time that climatic shocks and crises threaten individuals’ nutrition security, climate change-induced rises in the prevalence of waterborne diseases may increase human micronutrient needs. Climate change demands we build resilience - and one crucial component of that is micronutrient resilience.
