The map below shows percentage of households living in informal dwellings such as shacks (including backyard and no backyard dwellings). In a future climate change scenario, where there is increased heat and higher number of extreme weather events, these communities will become more vulnerable. Click here for an interactive map:


The map below shows percentage of households living in traditional dwellings such as huts and dwellings made of traditional materials. In a future climate change scenario, where there is increased heat and higher number of extreme weather events, these communities will become more vulnerable. Click here for an interactive map:


The map below shows percentage of households that use alternatives to electricity for cooking, such as fires. In a scenario where temperatures increase with climate change, levels of alternative fuel sources may decrease, making areas without access to electricity more vulnerable.

The map below shows the percentage of population that is young (under five-years-old) and elderly (over 64-years-old). In a future climate change scenario, where there is increased heat and higher number of extreme weather events, these groups will become more vulnerable. Click here for an interactive map:
