These maps claim to show which countries would be most vulnerable in the event of the effects of climate change reaching life-threatening levels - if they already haven't.

They were compiled using the ND-Gain Index, a project of the University of Notre Dame, in Indiana in the US.

The index is built on two variables, vulnerability and readiness, and has been monitoring countries since 1995.

The UK is seventh-best equipped to deal with the aftershock of climate change reaching its tipping point, behind mostly Scandinavian countries.

Countries most at risk meanwhile are in Central America, South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
