Risks & Vulnerability

Briefing/policy papers

Written by Eva Ludi, Kate Bird

Briefing/policy papers

People everywhere face risks, but poor people, especially those living in rural areas and depending on agriculture, and those living in tropical ecologies, are more exposed to a wide variety of risks than the non-poor. For this reason, in this Brief we focus our illustrations largely on the risk and vulnerability experienced by rural people living in poverty.
