Which countries are most likely to suffer from a warming world?
The United States, Australia and Canada all appear to be the most vulnerable nations in the world to climate change.
But the worst affected countries may be the Philippines, Brazil, Bangladesh and other nations where climate change is expected to exacerbate poverty and malnutrition, according to a new study.
The study, published Tuesday in the journal Nature Climate Change, examined a range of indicators of climate change including temperature, rainfall, sea level rise and land use, and found that the three countries have the highest risk of extreme weather events, as well as the worst chance of the worst consequences.
The United Kingdom, which has seen its average temperature rise more than three degrees Celsius since the 1950s, was ranked third most vulnerable.
While it’s unclear whether the U.K. is the most impacted by climate change, it has already experienced a number of extreme events and has been hit by a severe drought in recent years, which is expected for a period of several months, according the study.
It’s also been hit with rising sea levels that will cause the city of Bristol to lose its water supply by the end of the century.
The most vulnerable countries The study found that climate change impacts the poorest countries most directly.
The poorest 20 percent of households in the Philippines and Bangladesh have the least income, while the poorest 20% in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, the Philippines or Sri Lanka have the lowest income.
In addition, these nations have experienced severe drought and extreme heat waves in the past.
The World Bank has said that extreme heat will likely hit the United States by mid-century, and a severe heat wave in the United Kingdom is expected by midcentury.
“We are seeing a major change in how extreme heat and drought impact the poorest people,” said Dr. Andrew Rosenberg, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Leeds, who was not involved in the research.
“The climate change and water crisis in the tropics has a major impact on the lives of the poor, and it’s not just for the poor.”
According to the study, the poorest 10 percent of the world’s population in the 2030s will have more extreme heat events, such as those that have hit Australia and the Philippines in recent months.
Rising sea levels and severe drought have been causing widespread flooding in India and Pakistan, and more than 30 percent of Pakistanis have already died due to the drought, according an Associated Press report.
While the U, UK and Australia all face rising sea level and rising sea temperatures, the study also found that countries with lower population densities such as the Philippines face the greatest risk of rising sea and land temperatures.
This could lead to flooding, food shortages and extreme weather, the researchers said.
These are the countries most vulnerable to climate risk, according and they are also the ones least likely to be able to adapt to climate risks.
Climate change impacts on health and nutrition A third of the countries in the study have already seen a rise in extreme weather-related diseases such as dengue, malaria and typhoid, while three countries were also at risk of becoming the most affected by climate-related malnutrition.
Rising land-use intensities and rising temperatures could also lead to extreme drought, as water shortages in these areas could cause water to be diverted away from crops.
These could lead the poor to rely on food assistance programs, such at the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and UNICEF, to supplement their meager incomes.
“Climate change will mean that poor countries will be more vulnerable to famine,” said Rosenberg.
“It will also mean that climate-affected populations will be most likely unable to adapt quickly to climate-changing climate change,” said the report’s lead author, Dr. Daniela Rueda from the University College London.
“What is clear is that we need to prepare and implement a range, comprehensive and rapid response, including adaptation to climate changes,” said WHO Director-General António Guterres in a statement.
“These responses will be needed across the world, and are essential for our shared future.”
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) requires countries to prepare for climate change by 2020, and by 2050, the Paris Agreement has already pledged to do the same.
The world is currently at an average temperature of about 2.8 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, and scientists predict that global temperatures will rise by 4 degrees Celsius by the middle of this century.
That would have a devastating effect on the poor.
The U.S. has already seen its median household income rise by more than 10 percent since the 1970s.
The country’s population has also seen a drop in its median income, with the median family income falling by more in the years before the Great Recession.
In Australia, the median household net income dropped by more more than a third between 2012 and 2016.
This led to the biggest drop in median family incomes in the country’s history.
The UN has also been forced to make significant cuts to its health care and education budgets
