People and Planet: Addressing the Interlinked Challenges of Climate Change, Poverty and Hunger in Asia and the Pacific

The report underscores that more frequent and severe climate-related hazards will result in reduced agricultural and labor productivity, loss of livelihoods, and human displacement, hindering efforts to promote food security and alleviate poverty, especially for poorer countries and vulnerable communities.
