About the public dataset
XDI’s Gross Domestic Climate Risk ranks over 2,600 jurisdictions around the world in 2050 according to modelled projections of damage to the built environment from extreme weather and climate change including from flooding, forest fires and sea level rise. It also identifies which of these jurisdictions see the greatest escalation of modelled damage from 1990 to 2050.
The results showed that globally-significant states and provinces in China and the United States will be hit hardest, along with major cities and centres of economic activity around the world.
“Since extensive built infrastructure generally overlaps with high levels of economic activity and capital value it is imperative that the physical risk of climate change is appropriately understood and priced,” said XDI CEO Rohan Hamden.
How was the dataset used?
The dataset was published on the XDI website and shared with journalists to get maximum international exposure. It resulted in 1,142 news articles, and has since been used by NGOs around the world to demonstrate the severity and interconnectivity of risk between states, countries and regions.
