Standardisation
Standardisation

Expert-based system developed to convert datasets to standardised 0-1 index.

0.0-0.2 : Very low

0.2-0.4 : Low

0.4-0.6 : Medium

0.6-0.8 : High

0.8-1.0 : Very high

With reference to European and world max/min values.

For some variables (life expectancy) values should already be “very high” across the board. For others there should be more spread.

Conclusions
Conclusions

  • The CLIMSAVE approach to vulnerability assessment:

    • is replicable and transferable;

    • allows the integration of the concepts of capitals and coping capacity with stakeholder-derived scenarios; and

    • produces patterns of coping capacity that might be expected for the socio-economic scenarios.

  • The aggregate vulnerability hotspot maps suggest that human well-being is most at risk from water stress and biodiversity loss in southern Europe, and from the lack of food provision and land use diversity in northern Europe.
