Climate Change is Impacting our World, including our Food Supply

Reducing the likelihood of food shortages and famine is possible by addressing the urgent issue of climate change in agriculture. Our planet is changing due to climate change, and this includes our food supply. The good news is that we can increase our food security by incorporating climate-smart agricultural methods. Climate-smart agriculture: These methods lessen farmers’ susceptibility to extreme weather events and help them adjust to shifting weather patterns. Both our earth and our plates benefit from it.

Promoting sustainable and eco-friendly farming methods contributes to resilient crops and stable food production. Efficient water use and irrigation systems help ensure consistent crop yields, even in changing climates. Protecting biodiversity in our agriculture systems enhances resilience and supports healthier food production.

By addressing climate change in agriculture, we’re investing in a future where food shortages and hunger are less likely to occur. Let’s support these efforts and spread the word for a more sustainable and food-secure world.

Reduced danger of food shortages and hunger results from local community involvement and engagement in tackling the urgent issue of climate change in agriculture. In light of this, the Caritas Nigeria B-SLiC Project team and our project partners, the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus delegation, under the direction of Caritas Nigeria Board Chairman and Lagos Archbishop, Most Rev. Alfred Adewale Martins, recently began a courtesy visit to the project stakeholders in the Badagry area of Lagos State.

The team visited the Sacred Heart Parish in Hunto ahead of Year 2 of the B-SLiC Project. They were accompanied by Rev. Fr. George Anubuike, the Dean of the Badagry Deanery, who was there on a pastoral visit with the Archbishop of Lagos, Most Rev. Alfred Adewale Martins. The team also made a courtesy call to His Royal Majesty De Wheno, Aholu Menu Toyi OFR, D.Litt., the Akran of Badagry Kingdom, as part of the community entry and site selection procedures, to go over the project’s objectives and get his approval for its execution in Badagry.

These important conversations with influential church and community leaders highlight our unwavering dedication to sustainable livelihoods and community development in Nigeria.

Conrad N. Hilton Foundation funding supports the Building Sustainable Livelihoods for Vibrant Communities (B-SLiC) project, which promotes modern farming methods, enhances infrastructure, and makes markets more accessible while equipping local farmers with climate-smart agricultural practices. These efforts support food security, economic growth, and sustainable development.
