Blog: Poverty and drought in Honduras: Women share their situation with Mary Robinson

Small communities in the dry corridor in Honduras are the most affected. The drought has affected livelihoods, specially women´s, and has brought an economic crisis for many homes and migration to already overpopulated cities. Mary Robinson, United Nations special envoy for El Niño and climate change, met some women in Lange, Honduras.

Virginia’s story

“I see the climate is changing a lot,” says Virginia Ñuñonca, a farmer and community leader in the Peruvian highlands. “Before it wasn’t like this. Sometimes these days, with the cold and the frost, the grass gets really dry.”

Virginia has experienced first-hand the single biggest threat to the fight against hunger: climate change. It’s already making people hungry. Around the world wild weather and unpredictable seasons are causing chaos for farmers. Food prices are going up. Food quality is going down. Soon climate change will affect what all of us eat.

Blog: EU proposal aims to end human suffering behind your dinner plate

EU supermarkets abuse their huge purchasing power. Workers in developing countries suffer as a result. New legislation on unfair trading practices in the food supply chain proposed by the European Commission is a good start, but must go further to protect people in poverty.
