🗞️ Driving the news: According to a study by Anglia Ruskin University and the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI), the best places to live to avoid the impacts of climate change include New Zealand, Iceland, the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, and Scandinavian countries like Denmark, Sweden, and Norway
• These countries are chosen based on their geographical advantages, efforts in climate mitigation, and capabilities in climate adaptation

🔭 The context: The study evaluates countries on their carrying capacity, isolation, self-sufficiency, and their actions towards climate mitigation and adaptation
• While countries like Australia are noted for their geographical advantages, they fall short in climate mitigation efforts
• Conversely, Scandinavian countries excel in climate protection but are significantly affected by climate change due to their Arctic location

🌍 Why it matters for the planet: This analysis highlights the importance of global cooperation in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change
• It emphasizes that while certain regions may be safer from the direct impacts of climate change, effective mitigation and adaptation require collective effort and investment, especially in supporting vulnerable countries to develop resilience

⏭️ What's next: The future hinges on global actions towards mitigation and adaptation strategies
• Investment in vulnerable countries, particularly in Africa, the Middle East, and South America, is crucial for developing infrastructures and technologies to adapt to climate change
• Wealthy nations have pledged to direct $100 billion a year towards adaptation and resilience in the developing world starting in 2022

📈 One stat: The wealthiest nations have pledged to direct US$100 billion a year towards adaptation and resilience in the developing world
