“The 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development (Earth Summit) addressed climate change issues and coordinated international efforts. The Earth Summit pledged to reduce natural resource risks and promote reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In 2015, all Paris Agreement countries were also required to present climate action plans at the conference. In the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit, nations made stronger and more comprehensive climate change promises reaffirming the Green Climate Fund and renewable energy pledges.
Despite such efforts, climate change still highly affects global development and natural systems. High temperatures, water scarcity, unpredictable precipitation, and harsh weather can all harm agricultural output. Soon enough, climate change could also exacerbate food insecurity and malnutrition.”
