The effects of climate change on the poor and vulnerable is of increasing concern and focus of research. This issue of Boiling Point considers the impact of climate change on household energy choices and access. It looks at climatic pressure on land availability, weather patterns, and food security and the adaptation measures that can be made. Mitigation solutions are discussed including the success and failures of mechanisms such as the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and the voluntary carbon market.
