Unfortunately, in communities that are already at risk, climate change is both creating new humanitarian crises and escalating those that already exist.
The experts caution that significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide, methane & nitrous oxide) from the use of fossil fuels, deforestation etc. are required to stop the rise in global temperature and its devastating effects.
Many of the extreme weather occurrences linked to global warming don't discriminate based on a country's GDP or affluence. This was demonstrated recently by fatal floods in Europe, record-breaking floods in China, and a confluence of hurricanes and extremely cold winter temperatures in the United States.
Nevertheless, nations with higher incomes typically have more resources to deal with the inevitable effects of climate change. Countries with low incomes don't.
