Poor people most vulnerable to climate change – economist

An estimated 20-million people will be pushed into poverty because of climate change in 2030, which may possibly rocket to more than 100-million people if speedy social developments are not conducted, an economist said on Wednesday. “We estimated that 20-million people will be pushed into poverty because of climate change in 2030, and 20-million is a big number, more especially when you are one of that 20-million people, but still small compared with the global population," lead economist at the World Bank, Stephane Hallegatte said.
