The sectoral and health impacts of climate change are expected to have negative effects on livelihoods in terms of employment, income and consumption (including food security), and result in a lower level of development. The poor will suffer disproportionately more, particularly in the coastal and rural areas. Most vulnerable are women, children, elderly and the sick. Adaptation initiatives should ensure that vulnerable groups are addressed.
