MANAGER AFRICAN CLIMATE REALITY PROJECT “GILLIAN HAIMLTON” VISIT IN NIGERIA
As climate reality leaders ,we must standout to curb climate crisis at global level,(We must fix it ourselves).
Throughout the 21st century, climate-change impacts are projected to slow down economic
growth, make poverty reduction more difficult, further erode food security, and prolong existing
and create new poverty traps, the latter particularly in urban areas and emerging hot spots of hunger.
Climate-change impacts are expected to exacerbate poverty in most developing countries
and create new poverty pockets in countries with increasing inequality, in both developed and developing
countries. In urban and rural areas, wage-labor-dependent poor households that are net
buyers of food are expected to be particularly affected due to food price increases, including in
regions with high food insecurity and high inequality (particularly in Africa), although the agricultural
self-employed could benefit. Insurance programs, social protection measures, and disaster
risk management may enhance long-term livelihood resilience among poor and marginalized
people, if policies address poverty and multidimensional inequalities ( Livelihoods and Poverty).
You can get our Climate Times Journal and texts to know more about the biggest challenge of climate crisis and get adapted to it.
