  Today, around 12% of the world's population (around 800 million people) is in danger of starvation. The malnutrition causes around 4 million deaths annually. Mostly it is observed in the Africa continental. Experts are doing a lot of research on the effects of climate change. Research results show that this situation may worsen due to upcoming climate change because temperature rises of 2 to 3°C will increase the people at risk of hunger, potentially by 30 - 200 million. It is stated that if the temperatures increase by 3°C, 250 - 550 million additional people may be at risk. They would be in Africa and Western Asia, where the declines in yield are greatest, dependence on agriculture highest, and purchasing power most limited. Indeed, food production is sensitive to climate change, because crop yields depend in large part on prevailing climate conditions.
