Developing countries tend to suffer disproportionately from the damaging physical impacts of climate change due to a wide range of factors that create a specific set of vulnerabilities for each of them. These factors include their low geographical latitude and larges distances to major markets; being landlocked or surrounded by water; and having small economies, low levels of physical infrastructure and limited economic diversification. As such, developing countries are particularly vulnerable to ocean warming, sea level rise, altered temperature and rainfall patterns, and an increasing frequency of extreme weather events including drought and tropical cyclones.
