Kurzbeschreibung des Verlags:

The Global Climate Risk Index 2017 analyses to what extent countries have been affected by
the impacts of weather-related loss events (storms, floods, heat waves etc.). The most recent
data available – from 2015 and 1996–2015 – were taken into account.
The countries affected most in 2015 were Mozambique, Dominica as well as Malawi. For the
period from 1996 to 2015 Honduras, Myanmar and Haiti rank highest.
This year’s 12th edition of the analysis reconfirms that, according to the Climate Risk Index,
less developed countries are generally more affected than industrialised countries. Regarding
future climate change, the Climate Risk Index may serve as a red flag for already existing
vulnerability that may further increase in regions where extreme events will become more
frequent or more severe due to climate change. While some vulnerable developing countries
are frequently hit by extreme events, there are also some others where such disasters are a
rare occurrence.
The climate summit in Marrakesh is giving the “go-ahead” on developing the “rule-book” for
the Paris Agreement, including the global adaptation goal, adaptation communication systems,
and finance assessment systems for building resilience. A review on the UNFCCC’s
work on loss and damage provides the opportunity to better detail the next 5-year’s work on
loss and damage, in relation to the climate regime, as well as to better understand exactly
how loss and damage should be taken up under the Paris Agreement.
