Abstract

Because their assets and income represent such a small share of national wealth, the impacts of climate change on poor people, even if dramatic, will be largely invisible in aggregate economic statistics such as the gross domestic product. Assessing and managing future impacts of climate change on...

Abstract

We analyze links between exposure to climate extremes and shocks, vulnerability and coping strategies, environmental reliance and poverty among 7,300 households in forest adjacent communities in 24 developing countries. We combine observed income with predicted income to create four categories of...

Scientists suggest placing planetary boundaries on human-induced threats to key Earth system sinks and resources. Such boundaries define a "safe operating space" on depletion and pollution. Treating any remaining "space" as a depletable economic asset allows derivation of optimal and actual rules...
