Rising temperature and climatic changes could be a substantial threat to India's growth by 2050, according to a report of the World Bank. The changes in temperatures and rainfall patterns may decrease India's GDP by 2.8 per cent and depress the living standards of nearly 50 per cent of the country's population, said the “South Asia's Hotspots-The Impact of Temperature and Precipitation Changes on Living Standards” report. The temperatures in India will rise by 3 degree Celsius by 2050 if measures are not taken, the report mentioned.
