Global and Regional Health Effects of Future Food Production under Climate Change: a Modelling Study

This modeling study estimates the change in the number of deaths attributable to climate-related changes in weight and diets for six scenarios of climate and socioeconomic variables. Most climate-related deaths were projected to occur in south and east Asia.The projections reveal that adoption of climate-stabilization pathways would reduce the number of climate-related deaths by 29–71%, depending on their stringency.
