Global Food Security Climate Change and Food System Survey

Survey of British adults on behalf of Global Food Security on public attitudes to climatic shocks and their interaction with the food system.

  • Two thirds of those who agree human behaviour is resulting in the earth’s climate changing agree that the food system is a key contributor to climate change, and the same proportion agree that we could significantly reduce the impact of climate change if we all make changes to our diets.
  • Three quarters of the British public say that it’s better to change some of their lifestyle choices now if it means future generations are impacted less by the effects of climate change. A majority report that we should look to prevent potential future issues now rather than dealing with issues once they affect us.
  • Most British adults would like to receive more information on climate change and its relationship with the food system, suggesting more could be done to increase awareness.
