Global Climate Risk Index 2021

India is among the top 10 most affected countries in the Global Climate Risk Index 2021 published recently by the Bonn-based environmental think tank Germanwatch. It said vulnerable people in developing countries suffered the most from extreme weather events such as storms, floods and heat waves, while the impacts of climate change are visible around the globe. Being the deadliest and costliest tropical cyclone in the South-West Indian Ocean, tropical Cyclone ‘Idai’ was labelled ‘one of the worst weather-related catastrophes in the history of Africa’ by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
