To increase understanding of climate vulnerability indices and their use in allocating finance, the Center for Global Development and DARA, a Madrid-based organization committed to improving the effectiveness of aid for people suffering from conflict, disasters and climate change, are organizing a roundtable discussion. Speakers will outline three vulnerability indices developed by DARA, CGD, and the World Bank together with the London School of Economics and discuss their use for allocating adaptation funds. Participants will include government representatives from Bangladesh and Costa Rica as well as academics and representatives of think tanks and civil society organizations working on climate change adaptation issues.
