This report explores the effects of climate change on some of the world’s poorest communities, with cases from Nicaragua, Ethiopia and the Philippines. It highlights how communities already facing the problems of poverty have had their situations worsened by changes in climate and environmental damage. It looks at how those changes, especially in areas that lack the means to prepare for and recuperate from dramatic climate shifts such as typhoons and drought, can result in a shortage of food and rising food prices as well as, in some cases, immediate destruction of infrastructure and even death. Finally, it describes the action needed from politicians and people everywhere to halt global warming and protect creation.
