9780815702818: Climate Change and Global Poverty: A Billion Lives in the Balance?

Climate change threatens all people, but its adverse effects will be felt most acutely by the world's poor. Absent urgent action, new threats to food security, public health, and other societal needs may reverse hard-fought human development gains. Climate Change and Global Poverty makes concrete recommendations to integrate international development and climate protection strategies. It demonstrates that effective climate solutions must empower global development, while poverty alleviation itself must become a central strategy for both mitigating emissions and reducing global vulnerability to adverse climate impacts.

About the Author:

Lael Brainard served as vice president and director of the Brookings Institution's Global Economy and Development program, 2006-09. She has been nominated by President Barack Obama to be under secretary of the U.S. Treasury for international affairs.

Abigail Jones is a research analyst with Brookings.

Nigel Purvis is the president of Climate Advisers and a visiting scholar at Resources for the Future. He is a former senior U.S. climate change negotiator, acting most recently as deputy assistant secretary of state for oceans, environment, and science.

Review:

" Climate Change and Global Poverty provides a much needed blueprint for overcoming the two great crises of our time. This book defines what needs to be done and how to do it. It is a welcomed resource." —Helene D. Gayle, President and CEO, CARE USA



" Climate Change and Global Poverty is an urgently needed source of excellent analysis and compelling ideas. We no longer have the luxury of viewing climate change and poverty as disconnected, and this book spurs us to tackle two of the greatest challenges of our time with informed and innovative solutions." —Nancy Lindborg, President, Mercy Corps



"This book breaks new ground by showing how solutions to climate change and global poverty are intertwined. The authors define what needs to be done with refreshing clarity, and offer practical recommendations that are at once idealistic and yet firmly grounded in political realities and national interests." —Frank Loy, former Under Secretary of State for Global Affairs
