Briefing Note on Tropical Cyclones: Impacts, the link to Climate Change and Adaptation

Following the string of high intensity tropical cyclones in the Atlantic basin in 2017 and the devastating impacts on small island developing states (SIDS), a number of questions have been raised about linkages between these cyclones and climate change. This briefing provides clarity on scientifically-supported connections between existing tropical cyclones and climate change. The briefing also summarises how climate change may affect tropical cyclones at increased
global mean temperatures in the future and provides a summary of the observed socioeconomic impacts of these extreme events on SIDS.
