For millions of people around the world, the consequences of climate change are increasingly devastating.
Higher temperatures bring more droughts and the spread of heat-related, infectious diseases, result in the loss of homes, jobs and food. The far-reaching effects of climate change hit poor people the hardest. They have the fewest resources and the least capacity to prepare for, plan for, and withstand climate change crises.
