'Climate Just' data

The 'Climate Just' Map Tool shows the geography of England’s vulnerability to climate change at a neighbourhood scale. The Climate Just Map Tool shows which places may be most disadvantaged through climate impacts. It aims to raise awareness about how social vulnerability combined with exposure to hazards, like flooding and heat, may lead to uneven impacts in different neighbourhoods, causing climate disadvantage. Climate Just Map Tool includes maps on:

Flooding (river/coastal and surface water) Heat Fuel poverty.

The flood and heat analysis for England is based on an assessment of social vulnerability in 2011 carried out by the University of Manchester. This has been combined with national datasets on exposure to flooding, using Environment Agency data, and exposure to heat, using UKCP09 data. Data is available at Middle Super Output Area (MSOA) level across England. Summaries of numbers of MSOAs are shown in the file named Climate Just-LA_summaries_vulnerability_disadvantage_Dec2014.xls Indicators include: Climate Just-Flood disadvantage_2011_Dec2014.xlsx Fluvial flood disadvantage indexPluvial flood disadvantage index (1 in 30 years)Pluvial flood disadvantage index (1 in 100 years)Pluvial flood disadvantage index (1 in 1000 years) Climate Just-Flood_hazard_exposure_2011_Dec2014.xlsx Percentage of area at moderate and significant risk of fluvial floodingPercentage of area at risk of surface water flooding (1 in 30 years)Percentage of area at risk of surface water flooding (1 in 100 years)Percentage of area at risk of surface water flooding (1 in 1000 years) Climate Just-SSVI_indices_2011_Dec2014.xlsx Sensitivity - flood and heatAbility to prepare - floodAbility to respond - floodAbility to recover - floodEnhanced exposure - floodAbility to prepare - heatAbility to respond - heatAbility to recover - heatEnhanced exposure - heatSocio-spatial vulnerability index - floodSocio-spatial vulnerability index - heat Climate Just-SSVI_indicators_2011_Dec2014.xlsx % children < 5 years old% people > 75 years old% people with long term ill-health/disability (activities limited a little or a lot)% households with at least one person with long term ill-health/disability (activities limited a little or a lot)% unemployed% in low income occupations (routine & semi-routine)% long term unemployed / never worked% households with no adults in employment and dependent childrenAverage weekly household net income estimate (equivalised after housing costs) (Pounds)% all pensioner households% households rented from social landlords% households rented from private landlords% born outside UK and IrelandFlood experience (% area associated with past events)Insurance availability (% area with 1 in 75 chance of flooding)% people with % unemployed% in low income occupations (routine & semi-routine)% long term unemployed / never worked% households with no adults in employment and dependent childrenAverage weekly household net income estimate (equivalised after housing costs) (Pounds)% all pensioner households% born outside UK and IrelandFlood experience (% area associated with past events)Insurance availability (% area with 1 in 75 chance of flooding)% single pensioner households% lone parent household with dependent children% people who do not provide unpaid care% disabled (activities limited a lot)% households with no carCrime score (IMD)% area not roadDensity of retail units (count /km2)% change in number of local VAT-based units% people with % not home workers% unemployed% in low income occupations (routine & semi-routine)% long term unemployed / never worked% households with no adults in employment and dependent childrenAverage weekly household net income estimate  (Pounds)% all pensioner households% born outside UK and IrelandInsurance availability (% area with 1 in 75 chance of flooding)% single pensioner households% lone parent household with dependent children% people who do not provide unpaid care% disabled (activities limited a lot)% households with no carTravel time to nearest GP by walk/public transport  (mins - representative time)% of at risk population (no car) outside of 15 minutes by walk/public transport to nearest GP Number of GPs within  15 minutes by walk/public transport Number of GPs within  15 minutes by car   Travel time to nearest hospital by walk/public transport (mins - representative time)Travel time to nearest hospital by car  (mins - representative time)% of at risk population outside of  30 minutes by walk/PT to nearest hospitalNumber of hospitals within 30 minutes by walk/public transport Number of hospitals within 30 minutes by car % people with % not home workersChange in median house price 2004-09 (Pounds)% area not green space Area of domestic buildings per area of domestic gardens (m2 per m2)% area not blue spaceDistance to coast (m)Elevation (m)% households with the lowest floor level: Basement or semi-basement% households with the lowest floor level: ground floor% households with the lowest floor level: fifth floor or higher
