Teaching “Climate Change and Food Security” and “Climate Change and Agriculture”


As a high school or undergraduate Social Sciences or Environmental Sciences teacher, you can use this set of computer-based tools to help you in teaching topics such as Food Security, Agriculture, Climate Change and Food Security, and    Climate Change and Agriculture.

This lesson plan helps students understand the various aspects of food security, and the challenges faced in food security and agriculture at different
locations across the world. The activities explore the two-way relationship between agriculture and climate: the impact of food production on the climate, and the possible effects of climate change on agricultural production through location-specific examples

Thus, the use of this lesson plan allows you to integrate the teaching of a climate science topic with a core topic in Social Sciences or Environmental Sciences.

Learning Outcome

The tools in this lesson plan will enable students to:

  1. Define food security
  2.  Identify the climate-related factors that affect food production and crop yield
  3. Discuss how crop production may cause climate change
  4. Discuss how climate change may impact agriculture
  5. Propose actions that may reduce the footprint of the food system on climate change
