-The spatial distribution of the social vulnerability in Ecuador explains the socio-economic conditions of the population at subnational level in the country. Figure 2 provides the social vulnerability overview of the subcomponents at the subnational parishes in the country; the spatial distribution of the sub-components shows high levels of social vulnerability in the population subcomponent (figure 2A) in the rural areas across the country mostly in the Andes and the Amazon regions. Limited access to education (figure 2B) and basic services i.e water and electricity under the infrastructure subcomponent (figure 2C) tend to be more present in urban areas reason why the Major cities like Quito, Guayaquil, and Ibarra remain in the low to moderate levels of social vulnerability. Likewise, the economy subcomponent show high levels of social vulnerability in major urban areas i.e Guayaquil, Quito, this is due to the fact that urban areas are the economic hubs of the country and the majority of the population and their livelihoods are concentrated in major cities. ​ \\+The spatial distribution of the social vulnerability in Ecuador explains the socio-economic conditions of the population at subnational level in the country.
