Environment and Climate Change

Climate change disproportionately impacts people living in low- and middle-income countries, threatening to reverse decades of development gains. The connection between climate change and human well-being makes environmental progress a central issue to the task of alleviating global poverty. King Center-supported research investigates safety nets and adaptation programs to curb poverty amid the ongoing climate crisis. The King Center also supports research on how countries can benefit when transitioning to renewable energy sources and strives to identify methods for mitigating the climate change impact of economic growth in emerging economies.
