Nexus climate change and other development issues

Climate change around the world is creating new challenges for those involved in international development, since poor countries and population groups are much harder hit than prosperous ones. Climate change hampers development and jeopardises the progress that has already been achieved. It is also a hugely complex issue, with far reaching, integrated and often cascading consequences. The SDC is strongly engaged in addressing the nexus issues associated with climate change, including on food, energy, migration, conflict, disasters, infrastructure development and health.
