JOHANNESBURG - About one-third of food produced for human consumption gets lost or is wasted globally. This amounts to about 1.3 billion tons per year, the equivalent of six to 10 percent of greenhouse gas emissions generated by human beings. This and many more quick facts on the links between agriculture and climate change can be found in a set of “Big Facts” released on 30 November by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security.

The suite of 30 key facts, based on scientific papers, features colourful infographics and photographs from the field. The facts cover everything from undernourishment and population to forestry and fisheries, integrating the latest and most authoritative research on the relevant topics. Its release will aid journalists and other attendees of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) talks in Doha in need of on-the-run facts.
