The Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) and V20 mandated the third of the Forum’s flagship research program into the impact of climate change, the “Climate Vulnerability Monitor” (Third edition, CVM3), which was publicly released on 2 November 2022, with an online data portal to be released at UNFCCC COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. The CVM3 is the product of a multi-year research program involving a multi-organization science consortium led by the Global Center on Adaptation, Climate Analytics, the Lancet Countdown and finres, as well as 14 regional partner organizations.

The CVM3 presents an a unique global assessment of the climate change loss and damage entirely updated for consistency with the IPCC’s AR6 assessment report, with estimated, climate-attributable data for the world presented across three distinct bodies of work (biophysical, health, and economic) comprising, in all, 32 individual climate impact indicators for the time periods of 2030, 2050 and 2090, as follows:

19 indicators of the impact of climate change in biophysical terms including temperature changes, drought, precipitation and runoff/discharge, windspeed, soil moisture and crop yields.

10 indicators of the impact of climate change on human health, including through infectious disease and exposure to risks like heat, wildfires and food insecurity.

3 indicators of the economic impact of climate change on GDP per capita growth, inflation and interest rates.

The last Climate Vulnerability Monitor (2nd edition, CVM2) was published in 2012.
