Climate change will make the plight of the Bottom Billion even worse, being both an economic development issue and now a global security concern. Paul Collier does not highlight climate change but it is likely to impact the Bottom Billion, exacerbating the development traps in which they are caught. This is not just a problem for the Bottom Billion, however, and as such climate change is attracting significant attention. The climate problems of poor and marginalised groups can be addressed only as part of a post-Kyoto, global deal on a complex international agreement, with a balance of regulatory frameworks, technical support and assistance, market incentives and the involvement of all players.
