JRC - (GCCA+) Index

New GCCA+ index on climate-resilient development

The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) has created a tailored index to support the Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+) in its efforts to help the most vulnerable countries mitigate and adaptation to the worst impacts of climate change.

The new GCCA+ index – made up of 34 country-specific indicators – covers social, economic and environmental aspects critical in helping Least Developed Countries and Small Island States achieve ‘climate-resilient’ development.

The open source index is accessible via a web platform that serves as an interface between science and policy.

The lowest rank is the highest score for the objective of the index and it indicates the countries most vulnerable to climate change.
