Synthetic Assessment of Global Distribution of Vulnerability to Climate Change: Maps and Data, 2005, 2050, and 2100
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_IPCC_SAGDVCC_1.0


Summary
Abstract: The Synthetic Assessment of Global Distribution of Vulnerability to Climate Change: Maps and Data, 2005, 2050, and 2100 data set consist of maps and vulnerability index to climate change of 100 countries based on the Vulnerability-Resilience Indicator Model (VRIM), which not only presents sensitivity to climate change stresses but allows the division of indicators into components that reflects sensitivity and adaptive capacity. It was produced in collaboration with the Wesleyan University, Joint Global Change Research Institute, University of Illinois and the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).

Purpose: To provide geographically explicit qualitative portraits of vulnerability designed to incorporate both exposure to climate change reflected in temperature change, and subjective judgments of national capacities to adapt.
