Scientists map Vulnerability to Climate Change

Satellites, such as ESA's Proba-V, can monitor vegetation intactness from space.

With this map, that indicates the global distribution of the climate stability/ecoregional intactness relationship, the authors aim to support governments, environmental agencies, and donors to identify areas where to best invest in adaptation efforts.
