A unique new analytical tool to assist global citizens and investors seeking to improve their resilience to the impacts of climate change through investment migration. Assess your country’s climate resilience and explore the residence and citizenship by investment program options available in order to make strategic, data-driven choices about where best to live, study, conduct business, invest, and retire — now and for future generations.
The Global Climate Resilience study includes 180 countries, which were assessed in terms of their climate resilience to arrive at a Climate Resilience score of between 0 and 100.
The Investment Migration Climate Resilience Index features the 15 countries hosting residence or citizenship by investment programs that are the most resilient to climate change, namely those that fall within the Medium Resilience and Higher Resilience bands, with Climate Resilience scores of 45.0 or higher.
The study aimed to provide an overview of the climate resilience of the 180 countries for which complete data was available from the perspective of global investors by taking into account each country’s wealth in addition to its vulnerability to the impact of climate change and its readiness to adapt thereto.
The framework comprises parameters pertinent to high- and ultra-high-net-worth investors who are considering investment migration programs in countries that are more resilient to climate change to mitigate their personal climate risk.
A country’s Climate Resilience score consists of three parameters:
Each parameter consists of a matrix of between one and two sub-parameters (numeric values or the score in nature) that relate to the specific topic, analytical focus, and end-point of their parent parameter. Sub-parameters are numeric values or scores that are constructed based on quantitative or qualitative data from a range of reputable, publicly available sources. 180 countries in total are included as countries with missing values for one or more scores were excluded.
After the data was gathered, Climate Resilience scores were calculated for 180 countries based on the formula:
Total Climate Resilience Score = (Readiness + (100 - Vulnerability) + GDP) / 3
As mentioned above, the range was divided into three bands based on the Climate Resilience score:
