A recent report released by World Bank says climate change is already preventing people from escaping poverty. The world must pair efforts to stabilise climate change with programmes to eliminate poverty if vulnerable people are to be kept from falling back into hardship as rising temperatures wreak havoc on food security and livelihoods. As many as 100 million people could slide into extreme poverty by 2030 because of rising temperatures, which are caused by greenhouse gas emissions.
It has been half a year since the earthquake in Nepal, and the relief and rehabilitation effort still continue. At the same time, the Nepalese Government had passed new constitution law in mid-September and the first female president was elected in October. These new changes will hopefully stabilize the situation there and allow the citizens to return to normal livelihood.
