Climate vulnerability

The aim is to assess countries' structural vulnerability to climate change.



FERDI has developed a Physical Vulnerability to Climate Change Indicator (PVCCI) that measures climate shocks and the exposure of countries to these shocks. This indicator is intended to be used as a possible criterion for the geographic allocation of international funds for climate change adaptation. Created in 2012, this indicator is subject to regular adjustments. In 2021, FERDI has proposed the measurement of the physical vulnerability to climate change indicator at the regional and micro-regional level. Free access on
