It is likely that low-income households and already disadvantaged communities will be most affected by climate change.
Disadvantaged groups often have increased exposure to climate impacts (e.g. living closer to flood zones), and often have less access to protective economic and social factors like income to accommodate increasing living costs, retrofitting homes, and adequate insurance cover.
We need to ensure we do not leave people behind, especially the most vulnerable.
When we work on actions to address the impacts of climate change, we need to apply equity and inclusion principles to ensure we do not leave anyone behind.
