There are many children die of hunger every minute because they do not have access to treatment, but the impact of climate change on the drivers of under-nutrition – food insecurity, health threats, and water stress, future programming on climate change and nutrition, establishing a comprehensive nutrition surveillance system, and identifying, validating and costing the interventions required to protect nutrition from climate change and related hazards. Due to the very large number of people that may be affected, malnutrition, linked to extreme climatic events may be one of the most important consequences of climate change. Men and women are affected differently in all phases of climate-related extreme weather. Many of the world’s poorest people are rural women in developing countries who depend on subsistence agriculture to feed their families. Climate change could add to water and food insecurity and increase these women’s work levels.

Here is a connection between food and sex and it has nothing to do with the allegedly aphrodisiacal effects of certain foods. The connection between food and sex is a matter of good nutrition. Just as your body needs nutrients, so your sex life needs nutrients. Sexual desire and pleasure are largely dependent upon the proper functioning of numerous organs.

Climate change is likely to exacerbate the declining reliability of irrigation water supplies leading to increased competition for water. Water scarcity may lead to multiple adverse health outcomes, including waterborne diseases, exposure to chemicals, vector-borne diseases associated with water-storage systems and malnutrition. Drought and water scarcity can have negative effects on nutrition and the HIV/AIDS epidemic may further amplify these effects.
