Climate change is projected to increase the frequency and intensity of extreme drought across the world, particularly in regions that are already among the driest on Earth. Increasing drought frequency raises concerns for agricultural productivity and development, water supply, wildfire frequency and intensity, and energy production, as well as human wellbeing.
The following app showcases hotspots of hurricane impacts on cities and ecosystems across the world.
UN Sustainable Development Goals
The UN SDGs help to guide analysis and policy to achieve a safer, more equal world by 2030. Extreme weather patterns relate directly to SDG 13 (Climate Action) and SDG 15 (Life on Land). For more information on the SDGs, visit https://sdgs.un.org/goals.
