“The unfolding human tragedy caused by super-Typhoon Haiyan will only be captured in future reports. The Global Climate Risk Index 2014 tells the story of a country constantly battered by climate-related catastrophes… Our results are really a wake-up call to ramp up international climate policy and to better manage weather-related disasters. The year 2015 represents a major milestone, which needs to deliver a new climate agreement, and the international disaster framework is also up for renewal.” – Sönke Kreft via Germanwatch
