Every person has a right to food and water, yet too often these basic rights are denied. In a world of plenty, one in nine people do not have enough food to eat, while millions are denied access to land and water. Drought and other extreme weather patterns linked to climate change are ravaging livelihoods across the countries where Trócaire works.
- Trócaire supports people to obtain legal protection of their land and natural resources to ensure that they have food, water and a secure place to live with independence.
- We work with families to sustainably grow a wider range of food crops, so that their diet is nutritious and they are not reliant on one crop for their livelihood.
- When disasters such as floods and drought strike, we help families to recover, while in the long term seeking a just international response to climate change and the devastation it is causing.
