South Asia Hotspots and Living Standards

A new study published World Bank outlines the expected health (broadly, inclusive of standard of living measures) impacts of expected near-term mild to moderate climate change on South Asia. The book, South Asia's Hotspots : Impacts of Temperature and Precipitation Changes on Living Standards (by Mani, Bandyopadhyay, Chonabayashi, Markandya, Mosier), "hopes to create a sound analytical basis for investing in targeted policies and actions to build climate resilience throughout the region," and was the basis for a great New York Times visualization last week.
