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.

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.
