The Global Hotspots Explorer maps and presents information about impacts, vulnerabilities and risks arising from development, climate change in the water, energy and land sectors.
State-of-the art models were used to assess the future trends of 14 indicators of development- and climate-induced challenges linked to three sectors–water, energy, and land.
The tool is designed to explore what impact climate change has on all regions of the world. Interactively explore risk indicators to see what happens to under different scenarios of development and climate change. Users can also get an overview of the key risks in each country or river basin to see the population and land areas exposed. Data and figures are available for download.
The Global Hotspots Explorer is a product from the project Integrated Solutions for Water, Energy and Land – a 4 year partnership between IIASA, the GEF and UNIDO – and will be used by UNIDO to screen for risks in their project planning processes.
