The most vulnerable people are more expose to environmental risks and hazards, disproportionately affected by environmental degradation and climate change often excluded from environmental decision-making processes.

Fighting poverty means ensuring the sustainable management of natural resources. Resource politics revolves around the access, use and control of resources. This covers farmland, fisheries and forests; and other raw materials; and access to affordable and sustainable energy for all. 

The path towards sustainable development should take in issues like resource and energy efficiency, renewable energy, sustainable use of natural resources and the transition towards a climate resilient and green economy. Solutions will come from a mix of environmental, economic and social responses. And also from the inclusion of the most vulnerable.
