The World Bank reports on development indicators for each country. For example, it reports that US life expectancy at birth sags below that of high-income OECD nations. The indicators include data on school enrollment, carbon emissions and climate change.
The World Bank also links to a Climate Change Knowledge Portal and notes, “It is important to evaluate how climate has varied and changed in the past.” Such data are a boost for policymakers and businesses around the globe – and should not be ignored.
