Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_CESIC_2004EVI


Summary
Abstract: The 2004 Environmental Vulnerability Index (EVI) portion of the Compendium of Environmental Sustainability Indicator Collections contains 111

variables for 235 countries and territories. This index is designed to be used with economic and social vulnerability indices to provide insights into the processes that can negatively

influence the sustainable development of countries. It was developed through consultation and collaborations with countries, institutions and experts across the globe by the South

Pacific Applied Geoscience Commission (SOPAC), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and their partners. The data are distributed by the Columbia University Center for

International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).


Purpose: To provide insights into the processes that can negatively influence the sustainable development of countries, with particular reference to

vulnerability to natural hazards.
