Fernandez et al. (2017) carry out an examination of vulnerability assessments to climate change by allowing differing degrees of substitution among indicators. They show that results and implication change significantly under different values for the parameter of substitution within a Constant Elasticity Substitution framework. The purpose of this corrigendum is to amend errors in Table 1 when specifying the functional relationships between components of vulnerability and each indicator. Relationships should be set instead with respect to vulnerability itself to be consistent with the conceptual framework laid on the paper (see Table 1 below). After this correction the code did not need to be modified and all results and implications hold. [Table presented] The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
