Global future: climate change and poverty

Source(s):  World Vision International (WVI)

Global future, a World Vision journal of human development, number 3, 2009:

This newsletter examines risk reduction issues around climate change and how those living in poverty could be affected. Several writers discuss the implications of our current path: (i) Margareta Wahlström highlights the importance of disaster risk reduction for climate change adaptation; (ii) Chris Shore explains why climate change has such serious implications for the well-being of children; (iii) Alex Evans discusses the challenge of feeding nine billion people in the context of a warming world; (iv) Lydia Baker emphasises that climate change has critical child health implications; (v) Saleemul Huq and Muyeye Chambwera point out that for developing countries, pro-poor low-carbon growth is likely to have positive net benefits; (vi) Brett Parris' article argues that the economic case for strong action on climate change is compelling; and (vii) in the closing reflection, Jim Ball uses the story of the 'Good Samaritan' as a call to respond to those suffering from climate change consequences.
