Rising sea levels, drought, floods… the IPCC1 has confirmed the fact that climate change is deepening inequality and hindering the development of countries already suffering from chronic poverty.
The second part of the IPCC’s fifth report on the ‘impacts’ of climate change was published on Monday 31 March.
The Climate and Development Commission of Coordination SUD2 decided to give its reaction to these alarming figures in order to support the implementation of fair common policies, and to promote climate change adaptation solutions.
