As the world struggles with the enormous challenge of climate change, educating communities is vital, especially in developing countries where the poorest are most at risk of the impacts.

Poor people in developing countries often depend on the natural environment for their income, and for their food and water supplies. They often live in areas susceptible to changing weather patterns such as low-lying coastal and arid areas.

As a result, poor people in developing countries are more vulnerable to climate change impacts such as droughts, floods and other natural disasters.
