Climate Vulnerability Monitor Third Edition: A Planet on Fire
This publication includes contributions from Shouro Dasgupta and Elizabeth Robinson who were indicator authors for heat and food insecurity.
The Climate Vulnerability Monitor (“the Monitor” or “CVM”) is a unique global assessment at the national level of present and potential future climate change impacts on the environment, economy and public health. The Monitor consolidates the latest research from the scientific literature on the attribution of climate change in 32 distinct indicators of socioeconomic and environmental change and impact phenomena. The Monitor projects and compares how, for a wide range of countries, these impacts evolve throughout the 21st century under a climate and socioeconomic scenario that limits warming to 1.5°C, versus a below 2°C scenario, and a high emissions scenario without climate action to reduce emissions or mobilize additional adaptation efforts. The CVM3 and its scenarios and modeling are informed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) latest report, Sixth Assessment Report.
