Correa, Esmeralda, and Flavio Comim (2009). "Impactos Potenciales del Cambio Climático en el Desarrollo Humano: Un Análisis con base en el Abordaje de las Capabilidades" Paper presented at the 6th annual conference of the HDCA, 10-12 September 2009, Lima, Peru.

This paper reviews the processes by which climate change influences human development. Its original contribution lies on a proposed structure to classify and characterize the potential impacts of climate change on different dimensions such as health, education, security, livelihoods, cultural values and social relations. The analysis suggests direct and indirect relations, as well as mechanisms that link components of the climate and well being, which are the natural resources of water, soil and biodiversity and ecosystem services. This study is based on the vision of human development as characterized by the work of Amartya Sen
