Assessing the predicted impact of climate change
I like this map visualisation (below) from the Independent showing which countries are most at risk from climate change - the neat thing about this risk assessment is that it is based on two key variables. The first variable is a measurement of a country's vulnerability to climate change - this could be affected, for example, by geographical location and the use of land. The second variable is a measurement of a country's readiness to cope with climate change - this could be affected by the diversity of economic activity, the level of GDP, and the quality of governance, for example.
