Although the world’s forty-eight, UN-designated “Least Developed Countries” (LDCs) account for less than 1% of the emissions that are responsible for climate change, they suffer more than 34% of the world’s deaths linked to climate change. In other words, the twelve percent of the world’s population that lives in these countries is three times more likely to die because of climate-change-related flood, disease and famine than are people in the rest of the world. Those least responsible for the problem suffer from it the most.
