Surviving in a Changing World: Environment, Security and Microfinance

IISD Environment and Security Team members Richard Matthew and Anne Hammill have written an article for the Spring 2006 issue of Green Cross International's Optimist magazine.

The article summarizes some of the ways in which environmental change and security have been linked, highlights case studies from Nepal and Sudan, and discusses the current research being conducted on microfinance as a strategy for bolstering the resilience of the most vulnerable peoples in the world.
