Graham Watson

14th January 2022

This Guardian article highlights the asymmetric effects of climate change, looking at 10 under-reported climate crises and how the affect the developing world.

The bulk of them have resulted in malnutrition, often as a result of rising temperatures, but also the result of extreme weather events.

“The climate crisis is hitting people here earlier and much harder than the people of the global north,” says the advocacy lead for @CAREGlobal in Malawi.

However, beyond this asymmetry, we should also think about the fact that these economies are les well-equipped to cope with these emergencies.
