The World Bank has released a report. Its title is Climate Investment Opportunities in the Indian Cooling Sector. This report has been produced in collaboration with the Government of Kerala. The report says that India is facing a relatively hot summer. This summer starts early and lasts late. Giving examples in the report, it has been explained that this year summer started early in the country. People were coping with the heat of March itself, and in April Delhi’s temperature had hit a record 46 degrees Celsius.
The most worrying aspect of the report is the upcoming heat wave. It is feared that the intensity of the heat wave in India will soon cross its limit. Winds will blow so hot that humans will not be able to tolerate them. Even before this, it was said in a report that there will be more cases of dangerous heat waves in the Indian subcontinent in the next decade. In addition to this, the G20 Climate Risk Atlas also warned last year that severe heatwaves could be seen in India in the near future. Between the years 2036 to 2065, the heat wave will continue for a long time.
The World Bank report warns that the increase in heat will affect the economic production of the country. About 380 million people, or 75 percent of the country’s labor force, live in tropical regions. It is estimated that by the year 2030, of the 80 million jobs lost worldwide due to heat, 34 million will disappear in India. Most of the working time is lost in India due to the heat. In the future, its effect is expected to be seen on India’s GDP as well.
