The U.S. Climate Vulnerability Index
Environmental Defense Fund
The U.S. Climate Vulnerability Index (CVI) visualizes how drivers of cumulative vulnerability disadvantage communities across the United States. Better understanding of the intersections between growing climate risks and pre-existing, long-term health, social, environmental, and economic conditions is critical to effectively building climate resilience for everyone and deploying targeted adaptation efforts. Comprising 184 indicators, this mapping tool provides a robust, data-driven approach to understanding locally relevant determinants at a neighborhood scale.
