The physical impacts of climate change and their effect on the economy

In its Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) confirms that accumulating anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases, leading to higher concentrations of these gases in the atmosphere, are causing the Earth’s climate to change (Stocker et al., 2013). Physical impacts resulting from climate change have been observed in developing countries including warmer temperatures with longer and hotter warm spells, extended periods of drought, heavy rain and wind storms, stronger tropical storms and cyclones, desertification, sea level rise, beach erosion, saltwater infiltration of groundwater, algae bloom, and coral bleaching, among others.
