Shock Waves: Managing the Impacts of Climate Change on Poverty

Follow the event on Twitter #ShockWaves

Climate change is an acute threat to poverty reduction. This new World Bank Group Report "Shock Waves: Managing the Impacts of Climate Change on Poverty" finds that without rapid, inclusive and climate-smart development, there could be more than 100 million additional people in poverty by 2030.  At the same time, immediate emission reduction efforts and pro-poor climate mitigation policies are needed to prevent even worse long-term impacts.

This event will present the results of this report and discuss its implications heading towards the international climate conference in Paris.
