SURVIVING CLIMATE CHANGE WHICH COUNTRIES ARE MOST PREPARED?

Four out of five of the top global risks in the next 10 years are related to climate change. This has led to a growing global movement to make communities and ecosystems more resilient to the extreme impacts that could occur.

The University of Notre Dame’s ND-GAIN Index ranks countries on vulnerability to extreme events such as droughts and storms as well as readiness to withstand the shocks and stresses of climate change.

How does each country score when it comes to managing the impacts of climate change?
