The Climate Vulnerability Monitor  2nd Ed. measures the global impact of climate change and the carbon  economy at a national level. It calculates and compares the vulnerability for  184 countries in four areas of impact (environmental disasters, habitat change,  health impact and industry stress) using 34 climate and carbon related  indicators. The monitor uses five levels of vulnerability, from acute to low, to  compare and contrast nations.

The first Monitor was launched in  2010 to assess the effects of global climate change on nations up to 2030. It  uses current peer-reviewed scientific research, in-country field research and  critical input from two separate external advisory bodies. The first edition of the Monitor is  already used as a tool by development, humanitarian and aid agencies concerned  with addressing the growing impact of climate change around the world, as well  as investment and security analysts among  others.
