Zero Poverty... think again

An end to extreme poverty is unthinkable unless we act now on climate change, warns our new report.


We examined what science is telling us about the impacts of climate change. The conclusions do not make for good reading.

With extreme weather projected to become more commonplace, 20 years of progress on extreme poverty is under threat.

The things you care about most – food, water, health, education, equality and peace – are likely to suffer.

So what can we do?

In 2015 the international community will come together to address the next steps for climate change and development. What our report makes clear is that the two cannot remain separate. In other words, climate change is development.
