From “Our house is burning while we look elsewhere” warned by the former French president Jacques Chirac in 2002 during the Earth summit to “How dare you!,” said by the 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg at the UN Global Climate Action Summit in New York in 2019, climate change has long been at the center of discussion.
The true cost of climate change is felt in our health and now reflecting on the world’s economy. Since 1980, extreme weather has cost $1.6 trillion. A 2019 study found that a warming ocean has pushed global fish yields down 4% since 1920. Drought, shifting rain patterns, and disastrous weather destroy crops and leads to food insecurity. Intense heat waves and rising humidity affects people, particularly those in developing countries, putting areas at great risk of significant drops in productivity. The World Bank estimates that climate change could send 1.4 million people north by 2050.
All the above mentioned are warnings showing us how discussion over specific applications and profiles of analysis which will be key in future research work in the field of sustainable and climate finance is more than necessary.
