West Africa Coastal Vulnerability Mapping: Point and Gridded Locations of Fatalities, 2008-2013

The West Africa Coastal Vulnerability Mapping: Point and Gridded Locations of Fatalities, 2008-2013 data set consists of two layers: points representing the location of conflict events with fatalities within 200 kilometers from the coast during the time period from 2008 to 2013, and a raster layer created from the points using a kernel density interpolation of the number of fatalities. These layers were created from the Armed Conflict Location and Event Dataset (ACLED), which codes the dates and locations of all reported political violence events in over 50 developing countries. Political violence includes events that occur within civil wars and periods of instability. Armed conflict reduces human security and increases the sensitivity of populations to climate stressors.
