ABSTRACT

COVID-19 Geospatial Vulnerability Indices and the GeoLAC Repository for Geospatial Data   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "'The GeoLAC [Geothermal Congress for Latin America & the Caribbean] repository contains three maps of the LAC [Latin America & the Caribbean] region that aim to inform policy (governments and the World Bank) around the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] crisis.' These maps present three new vulnerability indeces that tackle the following topics: (1) Expected employment losses in local labor markets; (2) Structural socioeconomic vulnerabilities at subnational levels to various forms of shocks (economic, health, etc.); and (3) Socioeconomic vulnerabilities at subnational levels specific to the COVID-19 crisis."
