The global risk map by International SOS shows how climate change has changed risk levels and risk management.
The map highlights risks associated with ongoing conflicts such as Ukraine and between Israel and Hamas. The map saw a rising trend in the number of climate-related alerts being issued to clients as rising global temperatures are increasing health risks around the world. There were 80% more medical alerts issued by International SOS relating to climate change factors in 2023 compared to 2022.
Changes to medical risk continue to vary across countries and regions. Two notable improvements in medical risk this year are Bolivia and Côte d’Ivoire, largely based on the gradual improvement in access to quality medical care, particularly in the major cities.
