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


Summary
Abstract: Synthetic Assessment of Global Distribution of Vulnerability to Climate Change: Maps and Data, 2005, 2050, and 2100 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 Insitute,

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.
