This topic guide synthesises literature on the links between climate change and social development

Abstract

This topic guide synthesises literature on the links between climate change and social development, and includes evidence of their interactions, lessons, approaches and tools. It considers climate change impacts and climate-relevant interventions in the following areas:

  • five sectors: agriculture and food security, health, water, energy, and low-carbon transport;
  • three types of contexts: conflict-affected and insecure settings, urban settings, and coastal zones;
  • two key social development strategies: social protection and Disaster Risk Reduction.
