Environmental Issues: Climate Change
Climate change which is directly or in-directly attributable to human activity poses one of the greatest threats to poverty reduction.
- Increased climate change and variability has decreased agricultural productivity and availability of natural resources that are crucial to the livelihood of millions of people, especially the rural poor and marginalized communities that bear the heaviest burden.
- Climate change is also linked to an increase in the occurrence and severity of natural disasters that continue to devastate communities around the world.
