Online map shows impact of climate change

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has launched a new map to show the impact climate change could have on the whole planet by the end of the century if carbon emissions continue to increase.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has launched a new map to show the impact climate change could have on the whole planet by the end of the century if carbon emissions continue to increase.

The map illustrates how climate change could affect the global economy as regions connected by trade are affected by changes in crop yield, droughts, flooding and high temperatures. It also shows how many already water-stressed regions of the world could face an increase in the frequency and duration of droughts, at the same time as an increase in demand for water for agriculture and for the consumption of a growing population.

Foreign Office Minister, Mark Simmonds said: “This map shows how the impacts of climate change on one part of the world will affect countries in other parts of the world, particularly through the global trade in food. This reinforces the point that climate change is a global problem: no country is immune, and we all need to work together to reduce the risks to our shared prosperity and security.”
