Vulnerability to climate hazards

Vulnerability to climate hazards is implied by indicators, defined as the Vulnerability Index (VI), which corresponding to major natural hazards, categorized as drought, storm, and flood. In this regard, this dataset contains the data of VI value at the commune level attributed to these common hazards. The VI of these hazards were averaged to develop a composite VI representing as a whole of the vulnerability to storm, drought, and flood. The significance of vulnerability in each commune was classified as high vulnerable or quite vulnerable following the VI value.

Positional Accuracy There are no known issues with accuracy.
Attribute Accuracy The accuracy is entirely dependent on the data published by the National Council for Sustainable Development
Logical Consistency There are no known about the issues of consistency.
Completeness This dataset was extracted completely without any modification from the data resource published by the National Council for Sustainable Development.
Process Step By collecting vulnerability to the climate hazard dataset from the Climate Change data portal of the National Council for Sustainable Development in the form of an excel spreadsheet, ODC's map and data team extracted and converted it to CSV format, and then integrated this data with commune administrative boundary dataset and export it as shapefile for publication.
