World Risk Report 2015 Focus Food Security

The WorldRiskReport 2015 systematically assesses the vulnerability and exposure to natural hazards of 171 countries around the world. Published yearly by the Bündnis Entwicklung Hilft (Alliance Development Works) and the United Nations Univeristy, the 2015 report highlights in particular the linkages between food (in)security and disaster risk.
Recommendations for policy and decision makers include to gather more knowledge on the needs and effects of resilience enhancing policies, to reduce vulnerabilities to climate change in particular in rural areas, and to place more focus on disaster preparedness and preventive adaptation.
