Measuring physical vulnerability to climate change: The PVCCI, an index to be used for international development policies

Abstract

Many donors, international agencies and national policy makers, have called for the development of vulnerability to climate change indices which would make it possible to prioritize the recipients of financial support for adaptation to climate change. Indeed, despite the complexity of the phenomenon, there has been a proliferation of indices of vulnerability to climate change. However, these indices do not break down what is due to exogenous factors and what is due to the factors linked to policy (which mainly have an impact on resilience). What is needed for international policy design is a measure of vulnerability independent of domestic policy.
