A feature story on a comprehensive report by the World Bank that describes the threat of climate change to poor people and the ways to offset it through adaptation and mitigation strategies.
The students will view an embedded video to understand the need for policies to manage the adverse effects of climate change on poverty. The associated text and info-graphic will enable students to understand that measures taken to eradicate global poverty are thwarted by climate related factors and therefore, alleviation of global poverty must be addressed through ‘climate smart development’.
