West Africa Coastal Vulnerability Mapping: Gridded Subset of Sub-national Poverty and Extreme Poverty Prevalence

The West Africa Coastal Vulnerability Mapping: Gridded Subset of Sub-national Poverty and Extreme Poverty Prevalence represents the HarvestChoice Subnational Poverty and Extreme Poverty Prevalence data set as a one kilometer raster, and includes values within 200 kilometers of the coast. Poverty levels affect the "defenselessness" of populations in the low elevation coastal zone. These data were developed by the Harvest Choice project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Harvest Choice measured 2005 poverty levels using 2005 purchasing power parity data for two thresholds: $1.25/day and $2/day international poverty lines. The $2/day threshold was selected for this mapping exercise.
