Climate Change Related Socio-economic Sensitivity

Adaptive capacity is related to the income per capita, education, health, life expectation and distance-to-market. The higher income per capita can be found in Osh and Issyk Kul provinces. Batken and Naryn have the lowest income scores in Kyrgyzstan.  The Human Development Index (HDI), which amalgamates life expectancy, education and health indicators, is the lowest in the western provinces of Jalal-Abad, Osh and Batken. As a result, Batken and Jalal-Abad have the highest socio-economic sensitivity to climate change and the lowest adaptive capacity.
