The Global Climate Risk Index 2006 analyses how much countries and country groups have been affected by the impacts of weather-related loss events (storms, floods, droughts etc.). The figures for 2004, the latest available data, as well as those for the past 20 years show that less developed countries are the most affected. Thus, it is very likely that global climate change, which is expected to cause changes in extreme weather events, increasingly threatens many of these countries.
