Quantifying Vulnerability To Climate Change
Author: Arif Fazal Rahman

Commercially motivated country indices ranking the degree of vulnerability to climate change across nations represents a „number‟ aimed at directing, inter alia, development, disaster and aid efforts among countries. These indices however, fail to highlight sub-national vulnerabilities existing within countries being ranked. Using the IPCC‟s definitions of vulnerability in the context of climate change as a reference source this study devises a district level vulnerability to climate change index for 22 districts of Pakistan. The Index shows that there exists a varying degree of vulnerability between districts and a further variation within the rural, urban and gender divides of each district.
