Overview

Arguably the most important challenge facing the world in the twenty-first century is climate change, which will affect global issues of poverty and social exclusion such as food, fuel, housing, transportation, and air pollution. In Climate Change and Poverty, Tony Fitzpatrick offers a timely new “ecosocial” way to think about the conjunction of climate change and poverty, analyzing the causes, symptoms, and possible solutions to poverty and establishing a cross-national, multidisciplinary approach that will be of use to scholars, researchers, and policy makers alike.
