The world has seen record-breaking drought, with many people struggling to get by.
However, a new study has revealed that the number of people affected by the drought is actually declining.
Carrigan Farms, which is located in the Queensland city of Brisbane, is a small farm with fewer than 100 members.
It has been in operation since the late 1990s, and is known for its high-quality, organic food.
Its owner, Michael Carrigan, said the low water levels were due to a combination of a warmer climate, a warming climate itself and a combination, including global warming, of the global food system.
“We’re seeing a lot more extreme heat and drought, we’ve got a lot of water issues around the world, and this is the result of it,” he said.
“It’s really hard for farmers to deal with it.”
The global food chain is the way it is.
There’s no way it could be sustainable.
There’s an urgent need for more sustainable agriculture, and that is a key priority,” Dr Susanne Stahl, WHO’s director-general, said. “
We don’t have a global crisis of extreme hunger and poverty and we don’t need to worry about that.”

The organisation has urged the Australian Government to consider setting up a program to promote organic food, including organic farming.
