Cities in the world most affected by climate change

Nestpick help people by keeping a close eye on trends and developments in the most popular cities around the world. Currently, they are looking into how climate change will shape our planet both in the coming years and the distant future. To help us understand this better, they decided to conduct a study aiming to determine how the climate might change for major metropolises around the globe. The results reveal those destinations which may face the biggest shifts by 2050, including potential temperature changes, water shortages and rising sea-levels. They hope that this study will serve as a call-to-action for those in charge to ensure that the correct legislation and safeguarding procedures are in place to ensure the longevity and liveability of these cities.
