Addressing Socioeconomic Indicators of Climate Change Vulnerability
On October 12, 2023, AIR hosted a discussion to explore linkages between socioeconomic indicators and climate change vulnerability. In addition to geophysical features and land use practices, a country’s socioeconomic characteristics (e.g., economic strength, education level, and gender context) may also impact its ability to withstand the effects of climate change.
The Global Data Lab, based in the Netherlands, has developed a vulnerability index that can be used to facilitate comparisons of climate change vulnerability at the regional, national, and sub-national levels, while AIR researchers in the Human Services Division are focusing on strengthening education as a way to reduce socioeconomic vulnerability to climate change. Taken together, the webinar will highlight socioeconomic approaches and tools that can be used to engage in climate change mitigation efforts.
