World’s fastest growing populations increasingly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change – 4th global atlas reports

Source(s):  Verisk Maplecroft

The fourth release of Maplecroft’s Climate Change and Environment Risk Atlas includes a new Climate Change Vulnerability Index (CCVI) that analyses and maps climate change vulnerability down to 25km² worldwide. It reveals that some of the world’s fastest growing populations are increasingly at risk from the impacts of climate related natural hazards including sea level rise. Calcutta, Dhaka, Jakarta and Manila are rated at 'extreme risk'.
