Bill Gates says the best way to help poorer countries fight climate change is to make sure they’re healthy enough to survive it
Bill Gates says the best way to help poorer countries tackle climate change is to make sure they’re healthy enough to survive it.
Gates made the remark on Monday in the annual letter he jointly pens with his wife Melinda, in which the pair spell out their broad areas of interest as philanthropists.
The Microsoft cofounder argued that climate change is as much a public health issue as it is an environmental one.
Countries near the equator – which are disproportionately poor by global standards – are likely to be worst hit by climate change.
Gates argues this will disproportionately worsen the nutrition of people living in these countries, and make them more susceptible to disease.
