The distributional impact of climate change
Working Paper Series from Department of Economics, University of Sussex Business School
Poorer, hotter countries are more vulnerable to climate change and will experience more negative impacts. The pattern of vulnerability between countries is used to downscale impact estimates to income deciles within countries, to administrative regions, and to grid cells. Almost three-quarters of people will face worse impacts than their country average. Between-country variation is larger than within-country variation for income deciles and regions, and about as large for grid cells.
