Eating is an essential part of our everyday life, yet not everyone is privileged enough to enjoy an appropriate and unrestricted diet.
The impact of climate change on development and on food security is an issue for consideration and for global concern. People with limited resources are being affected by higher temperatures and the increasing frequency of climate-related disasters.
Every year, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and all the organizations concerned about this and fighting for the global "Zero Hunger Challenge" dedicate a few special days to them. The aim is to promote more sustainable food systems that guarantee access to food and a healthy and varied diet to people around the world.
