The SAARC region shares common challenges with high levels of poverty, depleting natural resources and increasing uncertainty to disasters. The evidences suggest increase in frequency and magnitude of climate induced disasters along with stress and conflicts on resources availability. The impacts will significantly increase, as global warming is likely to surpass 2°C rise. It requires efforts from all of us to limit the increase in the Earth's global average surface temperature to 2°C above the preindustrial level.
