In many rural communities living along the rivers and coasts of Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Pacific, poverty is deeply entrenched and malnutrition widespread. Many of these poor households are highly vulnerable to changing climate, sea level rise and broader environmental change. Some 250 million people live on less than US$ 1.25/day, roughly one quarter of the 1 billion rural poor generally described as having been left behind by the Green Revolution’s combination of improved seeds, fertilizer and access to markets.
