Bapon (SHM) Fakhruddin, Kate Boylan, Alec Wild, Rebekah Robertson, Chapter 12 - Assessing vulnerability and risk of climate change, Editor(s): Jana Sillmann, Sebastian Sippel, Simone Russo, Climate Extremes and Their Implications for Impact and Risk Assessment, Elsevier, 2020, Pages 217-241, 9780128148952

This book chapter advances SDG 13 by providing assessments of vulnerability and risk of extreme weather or climate events are essential in order to inform and implement appropriate prevention, adaptation, and mitigation strategies.
Legal identity for all – including women, children, and other vulnerable groups – is critical for achieving the SDGs. Linking Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) with identity management systems can transform how governments empower and provide for their populations. This compendium brings together good practices from select countries that have made great effort in linking these systems and highlights the resulting benefits. This contributes to SDG 10 and 16.
The Africa Regional Data Cube (ARDC), based on the Open Data Cube infrastructure, is a technological innovation that layers 17 years of satellite imagery and Earth observation data for five African countries. This report identifies the key enabling environment, data management and sharing factors that affect the operationalization of the ARDC and makes recommendations to inform the scale-up of the technology, furthering SDGs 9 and 17.
This report conducts an analysis of the intergovernmental fiscal transfer programs whose budget allocation formulas include population criteria.Through a series of simulations in three Latin American countries (Bolivia, Ecuador, and El Salvador), it analyses what would have happened if more accurate population estimates had been used when allocating transfers to subnational governments. This contributes to SDGs 10 and 16.
