Werz, Michael and Benjamin Pohl 2016: Supporting Global Food Security in a Changing Climate Through Transatlantic Cooperation. Washington D.C. / Berlin: Center for American Progress / adelphi.

Over the past decade, the links between climate change, food security, and political instability have steadily risen on the global policy agenda, and both adelphi and the Center for American Progress have played a role in bringing attention to their importance. The increasing urgency of food and climate security requires greater international cooperation and innovative policy responses to address these pressing issues.

This issue brief looks at the food security situation in the Middle East and how the United States and Europe can work together to confront the wide-ranging security challenges of climate change. It recommends that the transatlantic partners join forces to ensure a solid evidence base and improve access to data, link existing initiatives on global food security to improve their effectiveness, balance humanitarian and structural development assistance, and improve the global governance structures for food security.
