Madagascar is almost as large as Germany and Poland put together. The tropical island nation is home to a population of 26 million. Shockingly, the majority of these people suffer from poverty and hunger. More than 90% of the population currently lives beneath the national poverty line (World Bank). Also, more than 40% of all children under five years of age are malnourished. Madagascar’s economy, which shrank significantly after a five-year-long political crisis, depends primarily on agriculture (vanilla export) and, to a lesser extent, on tourism. As a result, the livelihood of most Malagasy is severely threatened by the effects of climate change.
