New Delhi: The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has released its climate change report sparking off a debate over commitments demanded from developing nations like India and China.
The report makes a direct link between human development and climate change. The report says that hundreds of millions, mainly in South Asia will be hit by reduced agricultural productivity by 2080.
The report specifically mentions the impact on the Indo-Gangetic plains. It also says there will be shortage of water due to retreating glaciers in the Himalayas.
This will also increase the risk of diseases for millions in Asia and make up to a third of species existing today extinct due to rising temperature.
