Katherine Sierra, Brookings Institution - Nonresident Senior Fellow - Global Economy and Development
The least developed countries are not responsible for global climate change, yet will suffer most from its impact. And the poorest people in these countries are the most vulnerable. The presentation outlines the challenges they face as they confront a changing climate. It will also outline opportunities for building climate resilience into country growth and poverty alleviation strategies. Case studies draw from examples in the water, energy, agriculture, and urban sectors.
