Abstract

Global Peace Index (GPI) is an index that ranks the safety level of 163 countries, including 23 factors in three categories which are safety & security, ongoing conflict, and militarisation. The impact of global warming and natural disasters on human life and the problems they cause are increasing year by year in various aspects. Considering this, the problem is that GPI does not contain any factors on global warming and natural disasters. These research objectives to confirm the adequacy of adding information on global warming and natural disasters to existing GPI, and to contribute to the fact that the future of the earth should be seriously considered at each country and individual level. As methodology, 28 factors which are related to global warming and natural disasters were collected from five data sources, and variables were selected from them and 12 machine learning prediction models were performed. The result was that eight models presented more than 70% of accuracy. These results demonstrate the validity of incorporating global warming and natural disaster data into GPI. Based on this result, this project will contribute to awareness of the safety rank of each country in the world and reduction of global warming.
