Floods, storms and heat projected to cost SE Asia $34 bln per year 24.2.2015 FirstPost: World
BANGKOK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Falling crop yields, damage to infrastructure and heat-related illnesses brought on by climate change could cost the four Southeast Asian countries of the lower Mekong River basin $34 billion per year, researchers say.

Environmental loss in Sundarbans worth Rs 1290 cr: World Bank 22.2.2015 deccanherald.com
Environmental damage in the climate change-hit islands of Sundarbans is costing India Rs 1,290 crore each year, estimates a latest World Bank report. The cost of environmental damage associated with ecosystem degradation and biodiversity loss is about Rs 6.7 billion (Rs 670 crore) annually, while the cost of health effects due to poor environment is estimated at Rs 6.2 billion (Rs 620 crore), it says. The total figure of Rs 1,290 crore is about ten per cent of Sundarbans GDP in 2009. Released here recently, the report Building Resilience for Sustainable Development of the Sundarbans is prepared by the World Bank in collaboration with the West Bengal government. "The losses stem from a combination of factors associated with unsustainable and inefficient economic activities - for example, mangrove destruction, impact of cyclones, reduced agricultural yields and unsustainable fisheries - as well as destruction of ecosystem services," the report says. Sundarbans is an archipelago of 54 islands and is home to ...
