The UN said on Monday that while there was no clear evidence about the exact rise in deaths, it added that the link between the changing climate and extreme weather was clear.

195 nation pact will be crafted to curb green house gas emissions. 75% of the 4.1 billion people affected were in either China or India. 131 million have been affected by flood in Bangladesh. 47 million in Africa.

335 weather linked events took place between 2005 and 2014. 14% is the increase in the number of such incidents as compared between 1995 and 2004. $1.9 trillion in financial losses are attributable to extreme weather events.

Reasons

A sustained rise in the numbers of floods and storms, drought, heatwaves and extreme cold are some of the reasons. 47% of all weather disasters are floods over the last 20 years.
