Heather McGray, a WRI Senior Associate and climate adaptation expert, explains how to enable the rural poor to adapt to a changing climate. The livelihoods of the rural poor are rooted in the productivity of ecosystems. Climate change, however, is already altering the functioning of these ecosystems in profound—and often negative—ways. Over 2 billion rural inhabitants live on less than $2 per day. Helping these people to build their assets and incomes will bolster their resilience and adaptive capacity, enabling them to meet the challenges of climate change and ecosystem degradation without sinking deeper into poverty. In this video Heather McGray explains how to do it.
