ND-GAIN’s mission is to enhance the world’s understanding of the importance of adaptation and facilitate public and private investments in vulnerable communities. The Index is unique in its focus on not only country vulnerability, but also country readiness to accept adaptation investment. The Index defines vulnerability as exposure and sensitivity to climate, population, infrastructure and resource stress, as well as the country’s adaptive capacity to those stresses. The Index defines readiness by social, governance and economic factors. ND-GAIN focuses on sectors crucial to human well-being that can be greatly improved by public and private sector innovation and investment.
