Country Risk Rankings

Country Risk Rankings provide the latest results for 132 countries on the extent to which national economies are exposed to natural resource risk. The ERISC methodology relies on Global Footprint Network’s Ecological Footprint and biocapacity accounts, a set of resource accounts for more than 260 countries with time trends dating back to 1961. The Ecological Footprint’s focus on renewable biological resources (such as fisheries, forests, cropland and grazing land) is supplemented with data on non-renewable natural resources including fossil fuels, metals and minerals to provide a more comprehensive definition of natural resource risk.
