COUNTRY RISK PROFILE

Measuring Impact on the ground

We look at seven material areas for commodities in all the countries that we operate: livelihoods, land, water, climate change, labour, food security and food safety. A traffic-light system is used to summarize the likelihood of risk in any country and we constantly monitor reports.

POVERTY INDEX - UNDP % Population in Multi-Dimensional Poverty

The Global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) provides a comprehensive and in-depth picture of global poverty in all its dimensions. The global MPI offers data for 101 countries, covering 76 percent of the global population - 2018 Data.

CHILD LABOUR RISK - UNICEF Total Child Labour

UNICEF maintains a series of global databases for tracking the situation of children and women globally. The UNICEF total child labour indicator covers percentage of children aged 5-14 years engaged in child labour (by sex, place of residence and household wealth quintile) - 2018 Data.

GENDER INEQUALITY INDEX - UNDP Gender Inequality Index

The Gender Inequality Index (GII) is an index that measures gender inequalities in three important aspects of human development—reproductive health, measured by maternal mortality ratio and adolescent birth-rates. The higher the GII value the more disparities between females and males and the more loss to human development - 2018 Data.

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE SCORE - UNDP HDI Mean years of schooling

The Human Development Index (HDI) is a summary measure of average achievement in key dimensions of human development: a long and healthy life, being knowledgeable and having a decent standard of living. The HDI is the geometric mean of normalized indices for each of the three dimensions. The education dimension is measured by mean of years of schooling for adults aged 25 years - 2018 Data.

FOOD SECURITY INDEX - The Economist Global Food Security Index

The Global Food Security Index provides a worldwide perspective on which countries are most and least vulnerable to food insecurity and how resource risks increase vulnerability. It considers the core issues of affordability, availability, and quality across a set of 113 countries - 2018 Data.

LIFE EXPECTANCY SCORE - UNDP HDI Life Expectancy at Birth

The Human Development Index (HDI) is a summary measure of average achievement in key dimensions of human development: a long and healthy life, being knowledgeable and have a decent standard of living. The HDI is the geometric mean of normalized indices for each of the three dimensions. The health dimension is assessed by life expectancy at birth - 2018 Data.

CLIMATE CHANGE INDEX - University of Notre Dame Global Adaptation Initiative

The Notre Dame Global Adaptation Initiative (ND-GAIN) aims to help private and public sectors prioritize climate adaptation, ultimately lowering risk and enhancing readiness. The ND-GAIN Country Index summarizes a country's vulnerability to climate change and other global challenges in combination with its readiness to improve resilience - 2017 Data.

WATER INDEX - WRI Aqueduct country score

This dataset shows countries and river basins' average exposure to five of Aqueduct's water risk indicators: baseline water stress, inter-annual variability, seasonal variability, flood occurrence, and drought severity. It helps companies, investors, governments, and other users understand where and how water risks and opportunities are emerging worldwide - 2019 Data.

DEFORESTATION RISK - % of Tree Cover Loss Since 2000

The World Resources Institute (WRI) Global Forest Watch platform interprets satellite images to detect changes in forest cover in near real-time. It also gives a figure for recent forest loss in a country - % forest cover lost since 2000- allowing systematic identification of high forest risk countries - 2017 Data.

BIODIVERSITY INDEX - GMAP HCV proxy - PS6 Presence and impact on high or unique terrestrial biodiversity

GMAP provides an early and high-level country and commodity-level evaluation of environmental and social risks associated with agro—commodity primary production. Performance Standard 6 (PS6) recognizes that protecting and conserving biodiversity, maintaining ecosystem services, and managing living natural resources adequately are fundamental to sustainable development - 2018 Data.
