Who Suffers Most? Extreme Weather Risk Index Unveiled at UN Climate Talks

Haiti topped the chart as the country most at risk from extreme weather events in this year’s Global Climate Risk Index, because of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 that left 200,000 people homeless and destroyed many crops.
The Index, released on the second day of the UN climate conference here, noted that while the damage in New York made all the headlines it was in Haiti that losses were greatest.
“The report illustrates that the self-help capacity of countries is being overwhelmed by the scale of the climate disasters they are facing,” said Christoph Bals, policy director of Germanwatch.
“These are the countries that have contributed least to climate change because they have tiny emissions, yet they are the countries that are suffering most from it,” he continued. “Developed countries that have caused the problem have a moral responsibility to help.”
