GFDRR and World Bank economist Stéphane Hallegatte lays out the case for climate action in the Washington Post.  “In terms of global estimates, I think the analysis convincingly shows that the situation is probably even worse than previous studies suggested,” said Hallegatte. “We are talking about hundreds of millions of people who will be directly exposed.”
