Low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) are particularly vulnerable to the adverse impact of climatic shocks. The International Network for the Demographic Evaluation of Populations and their Health (INDEPTH) has produced reliable longitudinal data about the lives of people in LMICs through a global network of 48 health and demographic surveillance system (HDSS) sites across 19 countries.
