Confidence shows the level of coni dence that the research team attributes to the indicator, based on a multi-point assessment. Judgements are made in relation to the set of indicators that make up the Monitor assessment only; so, for example, the research team has more coni dence in indicators labelled "Robust" than in indicators labelled "Speculative". Some experts may however consider the robust indicators to still possess inadequate coni dence, or speculative indicators to exceed simple speculation. A 3-point scale is used to evaluate whether each criterion reviewed contributes or detracts from the overall level of coni dence.

A 3-point scale is used to evaluate whether each criterion reviewed contributes or detracts from the overall level of coni dence. Severity shows the scale of the overall or absolute global impact of a given indicator and the breadth of effects internationally. "Major" impacts might involve, for example, tens of billions of dollars of economic damage or over 100,000 deaths on average per year. Other indicators estimate 
much lower levels of damage or even positive net impacts, in which case the severity may be assessed as "Minimal"

Affected Groups indicates the specific population segments or communities particularly affected or susceptible to the impacts of a given indicator. The groups may be socially, economically, geographically or otherwise dei ned depending on the impacts under examination. Injustice shows how unjust or not a given effect is on the global scale. It denotes the level of injustice of a specific effect or set of effects as they are assessed by one of the Monitor's indicators. Injustice is highest when the affected countries have least responsibility for climate change and at its lowest when impacts are shared the most among countries with high responsibility. The four-point score is dei ned by statistical quartiles, so the level of injustice is also relative only to the Monitor's Climate section indicators themselves. Responsibility for climate change is based on total country GHG emissions from 1990-2005 (Mueller et al, 2007). Priority shows the amount of support a specific effect area has received through international climate funding. It denotes the level of priority that the effect or set of effects assessed by one Monitor indicator has, as rel ected in international climate i nance expenditures for adaptation."High priority" denotes higher levels of funding from developed countries, targeting the issue in affected developing countries."Low" or"no priority" is given to concerns for which i nancial support has been marginal or virtually absent. The OECD Creditor Reporting System sub-sector l ows for 2010 have been used as the basis for the analysis (OECD CRS, 2012). High priority Low priority Not a priority The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) represent the international community's eight primary objectives for poverty reduction to be achieved by 2015. The MDG Effect indicates an impact for specific MDGs. One of the eight goals relates to an international partnership for development and is not relevant to the Monitor's impact analysis. Any of the other seven goals are highlighted whenever an indicator assesses a Climate or Carbon effect that is understood to specifically undermine one or another of these goals. (For more information on the MDGs visit: www.un.org/millenniumgoals) Millenium Development Goal (MDG): End Poverty and Hunger Millenium Development Goal (MDG): Achieve Universal Primary Education Millenium Development Goal (MDG): Promote Gender Equality Millenium Development Goal (MDG): Reduce Child Mortality Millenium Development Goal (MDG): Improve Maternal Health Millenium Development Goal (MDG): Combat HIV/AIDS & Infectious Diseases Millenium Development Goal (MDG): Ensure Environmental Sustainability
