The report analyses the impact of climate change on regions in Asia and Africa. Based on different scenarios, it looks at sectors and living environments that are important for social and economic stability and development. The result is a dramatic picture of a world of climate and weather extremes causing devastation and human suffering. In many cases, multiple threats of increasing extreme heat waves, sea-level rise, more severe storms, droughts and floods will have severe negative implications for the poorest and most vulnerable.
