Climate and Poverty
As we talk with families around the world the message is clear: climate change is threatening their lives. They tell us drought is more frequent. Storms, more severe. And that they are scared for their future.
A changing climate may be an inconvenience to us, but to many around the world it is a matter of life and death. Without action, climate change is poised to push 132 million more into extreme poverty by 2030.
We don’t believe that this is OK. Join us as we work towards a future where everyone can thrive.

The Frontlines of a Changing Climate

These are their stories.
