Shock Waves. Managing the Impacts of Climate Change on Poverty. World Bank Report 2016.

The authors of this World Bank publication sustain that global efforts to alleviate poverty will be threatened if climate change is not accounted for in policy choices. The report first outlines the framework to understand the links between climate change and poverty eradication. Further chapters give detailed accounts of the central issues of food security, natural disasters, and health, and discuss policy options including (financial) support systems. Conclusively, the report provides guidance on how the objectives of ending poverty and stabilizing climate change can be integrated in both short-term and long-term policy making.
