About the Coastal Vulnerability Index & Climate Change Inspector
The "Coastal Coastal Vulnerability Index & Climate Change" study is one of twelve studies within AGEDI's "Local, National, and Regional Climate Change (LNRCC) Programme.
The study developed a framework to assess the vulnerability of the UAE's coastal environment (both natural and built) to climate change. A research team led by Gregg Verutes, affiliated with the Natural Capital Project at Stanford University, carried out the study.
The main objective of this Inspector is to offer comprehensive online access to the outputs of the study, including all maps & vulnerability indices produced as well as all output databases developed in order to help stakeholders and researchers alike to explore the results of the assessment in detail.
