The Climate Vulnerability Monitor (“the Monitor” or “CVM”) is a unique global assessment at the national level of present and potential future climate change impacts on the environment, economy and public health. The Monitor consolidates the latest research from the scientific literature on the attribution of climate change in 32 distinct indicators of socioeconomic and environmental change and impact phenomena. The Monitor projects and compares how, for a wide range of countries, these
impacts evolve throughout the 21st century under a climate and socioeconomic scenario that limits warming to 1.5°C, versus a below 2°C scenario, and a high emissions scenario without climate action to reduce emissions or mobilize additional adaptation efforts. The CVM3 and its scenarios and modeling are informed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) latest report, Sixth Assessment Report.
The Monitor is commissioned by the Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) and the Vulnerable Twenty Group (V20). Climate Analytics, finres, the Lancet Countdown, and the CVF and V20 secretariat, hosted at the Global Center on Adaptation, formed the Consortium of organizations contributing to the CVM3, and supported by dedicated expert panels and regional partners.
