WHY DO WE FOCUS ON CLIMATE CHANGE?
Climate change affects everyone, but people in the poorest countries are the most vulnerable to risks associated with droughts, floods, coastal storms and changes in agricultural productivity. Adaptation to build up resilience to these risks is the most significant challenge facing people in these countries today. 

IDA, the World Bank's Fund for the Poorest, is helping the poorest nations adapt by building their resilience to disasters, promoting sustainable development to minimize their vulnerability, and is investing in low-carbon solutions.

IDA is a multi-issue institution, supporting the world's 81 poorest countries through a range of activities that pave the way toward equality, economic growth, job creation, and better living conditions. IDA places emphasis on four areas where support is urgently needed: gender, climate change, fragile and conflict-affected countries, and crisis response.
