10 Figure 6: Which countries are least resilient (i.e. may confront challenges to doing something about the impacts) Source: Own elaboration Notes: Index 3 is calculated based on six indicators, which are tagged to be at high risk if these exceed a certain threshold: fiscal balance/GDP (%) that is less -2%; current account balance/GDP (%) that is less than -3%; foreign currency reserves at less than 3 months worth of import cover; external debt/GDP (%) that exceeds 50%; expenditure on health/GDP (%) that is less than 5%; and health care access and quality index score that is less than 50. Each indicator is given an equal weight of 0.17, with the highest possible sub-index score of 1. Meanwhile, sub-index 2b is calculated based on five indicators: exports of goods and services/GDP (%); FDI inflows/GDP (%); personal remittances received/GDP (%); migrants/population (%); international tourism receipts/total exports (%). Each indicator is given an equal weight of 0.16, with the highest possible index score of 1. A higher index score indicates a weaker resiliency. Refer to raw data and sources in Appendices 1 and 2.
