dc.description.abstractIn the twenty first century, climate change and its effects have been brought to our attention not only by scientists and researchers, but by international development agencies working with those living in poverty. Large development groups such as Oxfam, CARE International and Save the Children are all beginning to realize that the irreversible damage that has been done to our ecosystems is beginning to hold back development initiatives and inhibit further strides to be made in the Millennium Devemopment goals. Climate change - changes in the world's hydrological cycles, weather patterns, sea levels and increasing intensity and frequency of extreme weather events-will have left approximately 50 million environmental refugees by 2010 with an additional I 50 million people by 2050.en_US
