Climate change is the gravest challenge humanity faces, endangering peace and prosperity, food security, and the full enjoyment of human rights for every person on earth. We all experience the effects. But people living in poverty feel them the most harshly. Climate change and poverty are now so deeply intertwined that we must solve them together.
