Taking into account 44 indicators exposing an unabated rise in the health impact of climate change, a research by 38 academic and UN institutions found that India and Brazil had the biggest increase in heat-related mortality in 2018-2019, The Wire reflected.

Meanwhile, India’s vulnerability to extremes of heat in 2019 was 15 percent higher than in 1990 and had the largest increase in wildfires, along with China and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The report stressed that India will be one of the most affected countries by climate change-induced heatwaves.

A study recorded 14 million people forced to migrate within India in 2020 due to slow-onset impacts such as sea level rise, water stress, crop yield reductions, drought and ecosystem loss.

It might be more than 45 million by 2050.
