The inequality of climate change from 1.5°C to 2°C of global warming

Source(s):  American Geophysical Union (AGU)

The Paris Agreement aims to keep global warming well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels with a preferred ambitious 1.5°C target. Developing countries, especially small island nations, pressed for the 1.5°C target to be adopted, but who will suffer the largest changes in climate if we miss this target? This paper shows that exceeding the 1.5°C global warming target would lead to the poorest experiencing the greatest local climate changes. Under these circumstances greater support for climate adaptation to prevent poverty growth would be required.
