The physical effects of climate change are already apparent across the world. They include more frequent disasters that are becoming increasingly destructive, more extreme weather events like floods and storms, and a higher number of days with extreme heat. The consequences of these physical effects are not borne equally across society, as the research presented in this Forum Digest shows. We thank Stéphane Hallegatte, for curating this digest. For our April Digest Stéphane Hallegatte, Senior Climate Change Adviser at the World Bank, also a previous speaker in our webinar series, has selected his favorite papers on the distributional impacts of physical climate change.
