Climate Change policy

According to you, which health impact due to climate change should be prioritized on the United Nations agenda?

Food is the key


IPCC reports forecast a decrease of food production lands and simultaneous growth of world population. Hence, currently existing problem will inveitably worsen.
One must also take into account the fact that malnutrition can severely affect immune system amplifying other epidemiological problems global warming brings to us.
It is also worth noting that food poduction industry is itself a considerable source of greenhouse gases.
Thus, I think food quality and accessibility is the key question concerning both adaptation and mitigation of climate change.
