The event focused on adaptation to climate change. It was an opportunity to discuss how to measure the exposure of countries and territories to climate change, and the implications for development aid and countries' sustainable development trajectories.
Matthieu Boussichas presented Ferdi's work on a national and a sub-national index of physical vulnerability to climate change (PVCCI) and how the index could be used in the allocation of aid to adaptation between countries and for the distribution of this aid between territories within a country.
