Emissions v. Vulnerability by Information design: Valerio Pellegrini | Editor: Emily Newhook, 2U Inc

MHA@GW, the online master of health administration offered through the Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University, created this data visualization to compare the nations that contribute the most CO2 with the nations that are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. To illustrate that concept, we’ve compared data from the Notre Dame Global Adaptation Index (ND-GAIN), which summarizes a country’s vulnerability to climate change and other global challenges in combination with its readiness to improve resilience, with data from the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC).
