Senior fellow David Wheeler quantifies and makes available in this dataset the vulnerability of 233 countries to three major effects of climate change (weather-related disasters, sea-level rise, and reduced agricultural productivity).
The dataset is discussed in his working paper, "Quantifying Vulnerability to Climate Change: Implications for Adaptation Assistance," and informs his project mapping the impacts of climate change.
