Climate change isn't a threat; it is a reality. There are severe warnings that the world is likely to warm by more than 1.5 degrees Celsius over the next five years, leading to the migration of investors and entrepreneurs to areas where the risk of investing in climate change is the lowest. In this regard, "Henley and Partners" has published the first edition of the Investment Migration Climate Resilience Index, which aims to enlighten global citizens and investors about climate-resilient places.
