Managing the Impacts of Climate Change on Poverty

Poor people are already at high risk from climate-related shocks, including crop failures from reduced rainfall, spikes in food prices after extreme weather events, and increased incidence of diseases after heat waves and floods. Without rapid, inclusive and climate-smart development, together with emissions-reductions efforts that protect the poor, there could be more than 100 million additional people in poverty by 2030, particularly in Africa and South Asia.

the richer much shared its resources to support the poorer. Believe it or not, if too many poorer, eventually the richer will have the bad impact
