The poor in India and rest of the world, are bearing the brunt of two problems: poverty and climate change, which are considerably overlapped.

Climate change in many places is not only affecting the existing poor in the country but also creating circumstances for future poverty.

The faces of climate change are many - cyclones, floods, draught, heatwaves, etc. The effect of all is mainly borne by one segment of human society: the poor.
