Climate change and vulnerability: Pushing people over the edge, a CAFOD briefing, September 2014

This briefing examines the link between poverty and climate change by quantifying how many of those most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change are already struggling with extreme poverty. The findings show that climate change is likely to make life considerably worse for these people, unless action is taken to tackle its root causes of climate change and to support people in adapting to its effects.
