COP26 – Global Justice Climate change is an ongoing threat to poverty reduction, and it will intensify in coming years. New analyses for this report estimate that climate change will drive 68 million to 135 million into poverty by 2030. Climate change is a particularly grave threat for countries of SubSaharan Africa and South Asia — the regions where most of the global poor are concentrated.
The impacts of climate change can also include higher food prices, deteriorating health conditions, and exposure to disasters, such as floods, that affect both the poor and the general population. Especially for the poorest small countries, climate change is perhaps the most vexing challenge, and the problem is not of those countries’ making.
Human-induced rises in global temperatures and sea levels are almost entirely a product of levels of energy use by high-income nations and large, rapidly growing middle-income countries.
