Global Adaptation Index

From ICT4D Wiki

The Global Adaptation Index (GaIn) summarizes a country's Vulnerability to climate change and other global challenges on the one hand and its Readiness to improve resilience on the other hand. It aims to help businesses and the public sector better prioritize investments for a more efficient response to the immediate global challenges ahead.

The GaIn is built after two main categories, which are also composite indices of other sub-categories:

  • Vulnerability
    • Food
    • Water
    • Health
    • Infrastructure
    • Exposure
    • Sensitivity
    • Capacity
  • Readiness
    • Economic
    • Governance
    • Social readiness
