World Resources Report 2008 continues the focus of the World Resources report series on poverty and the environment.
The reality of global poverty is that it is rural and it is persistent: three-quarters of the 2.6 billion people living on less than $2 per day—almost 2 billion—live in rural areas; that number is virtually unchanged in 20 years.
World Resources 2008 argues that successfully scaling up environmental income for the poor requires three elements:
The result is communities with increased resilience: economic, social and environmental.
Such outcomes take on added import as it becomes increasingly clear that the impacts of climate change are likely to have their biggest effect on those areas where most of the world’s poor live: drylands, low-latitude geographies and high-stress watersheds.
