Climate Vulnerability Monitor shows global vulnerability to sea level rise

The second edition of the Climate Vulnerability Monitor measures impacts of climate change and the ‘carbon economy’ at the national level across 184 countries, using 34 indicators in four categories, and registers five levels of vulnerability, accordingly. The monitor, started in 2010, is already used as a tool by humanitarian and development agencies concerned with coping with change, and by risk and financial analysts, too.

The Data Portal allows you to look at a specific impact of climate change – sea level rise, for example. The Monitor shows the level of vulnerability of each country, as well as additional economic cost, additional population affected, and net land lost for 2010 and 2030.
