According to the World Bank's analysis, the rising temperature and altered rainfall pattern brought on by Climate Change, might cost India 2.8 percent of its GDP by 2050. The reality is that India will still see an annual temperature increase of 1 to 2 degrees Celsius even if it implements every decision made in the 2015 Paris agreement. If no action is taken, the increase will be between 1.5 and 3 degrees Celsius per year. This year, the northwest region faced the hottest April in 122 years with temperatures touching above 40 degrees.
