The UK, Europe and the rest of the world are witnessing unprecedented weather events like heatwaves, wildfires, and flooding. The consequences are multifaceted, multidimensional, and crosscutting, impacting race, geographical boundaries, gender, demography, etc. For example, between May and September 2022, more than 61,000 people died across Europe due to heat waves. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), heat-related mortality among people over the age of 65 nearly doubled in the past two decades, with Europe accounting for more than 30%. In 2023, the UK had to battle excessive rainfall and flooding, with the Met Office issuing tens of flood warnings while 1,250 homes in England were affected by heavy rainfall amidst substantial breaches in rivers in Yorkshire, the Humber, and the East Midlands. Evacuations were reported in Derby as Storm Babet left around 4,000 people across the UK without power. Climate change could push an additional 68 to 135 million people into extreme poverty worldwide, even as it threatens to reverse the advancements made in development, global health, and poverty reduction over the past 50 years.
