Population, poverty and climate change

Under the Policy Research Working Paper series, the World Bank has recently released the report Population, Poverty, and Climate Change.

According to the author Monica Das Gupta, the relationships between population dynamics, poverty, and climate change have now been recognized. Das Gupta lists the evidence that confirm this relationship and its effect on developing countries.

Countries in the Southern Hemisphere are not principally responsible for climate change, but these are the countries that will have to face natural disasters, food and water scarcity and conflict resulting from a changing world scene.
