Why is South Asia vulnerable to climate change?


This article provides information about the cause of South Asia being vulnerable to climate change. With a graphical representation of the South Asia Population Projection, it gives a brief on the vulnerability of South Asia to Climate-induced Disasters. High population levels translate into increased resource demands on an already stressed natural resource base. In sum, high population densities, a large concentration of poverty, and climate variability all combine to make South Asia highly sensitive to the consequences of climate change.
