Muscat: The Sultanate of Oman was ranked among the top five Arab countries in the Climate Resilience Index, which was recently issued by the British consulting firm Henley & Partners.

The Sultanate ranked fifty-fourth (54) globally, and was ranked with the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait as the best Arab countries in this indicator, which monitors the extent to which countries are prepared to adapt and withstand the phenomenon of climate change.

The report noted that people and assets are likely to be negatively affected in countries with low resilience to climate change.

The United States of America topped the index, followed by Germany, followed by the United Kingdom, followed by Switzerland, followed by Canada, while Chad came at the end of the classification, followed by Central Africa, and Eritrea. Countries were divided into three resilience scales: higher resilience, medium resilience, and lower resilience, and it was found that of the 180 countries assessed, only 15 were rated as having higher resilience, with climate resilience scores of 60 or more out of 100. The other 23 are classified as moderately resilient, with scores ranging from 45 to 59.9, while the remaining 142 – the vast majority, are all less resilient, with scores of 44.9 or less.

The report said that citizens of countries with a less resilience scale are expected to be at greater risk of extreme environmental events, such as wildfires, hurricanes, heat waves, floods, droughts and storms.
