Up in smoke? Threats from, and responses to, the impact of global warming on human development

Source(s):  Oxfam International Secretariat

This report stresses the need for informing the public on the gravity of the impacts of climate change on human existence across the globe, considering the nexus between climate change and the widespread prevalence of poverty in the world (health, access to food, clean water and other resources). By integrating the impacts of climate change in the form of adaptation measures within development strategies can certainly minimize the cost of such impacts.
