The annually published Global Climate Risk Index analyses to what extent countries have been affected by the impacts of weather-related loss events (storms, floods, heat waves etc.).

Unfortunately, we were unable to compile a Climate Risk Index in 2022 and 2023 due to a temporary lack of data at our data supplier. We are very sorry about this.
