Supplementary notes

The Global Climate Risk Index (CRI) analyses quantified impacts of extreme weather events – both in terms of fatalities as well as economic losses that occurred. It analyzes the loss figures of 180 countries from 2019 and the period between 2000 to 2019 were taken into account. The CRI examines both absolute and relative impacts to create an average ranking of countries in four indicating categories:
1. Number of deaths,
2. Number of deaths per 100,000 inhabitants,
3. Sum of losses in US$ in purchasing power parity (PPP) as well as
4. Losses per unit of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).,
with a stronger emphasis on the relative indicators. The countries ranking highest are the ones most impacted and should consider the CRI as a warning sign that they are at risk of either frequent events or rare, but extraordinary catastrophes.
