- In this paper, fragility which is measured by Fragile State Index is used to represent a country's development potential. Then, we establish an evaluating system to measure a country's fragility based on GRNN model and Entropy weight method. Besides, we analyze the impact of climate change on the results. And taking Afghanistan as an example, we analyze the country's fragility. First, we establish the basic structure of evaluating system based on AHP. Then, the Entropy Weight Method is applied to solve the correlation between the principle layer and the indicator layer, while the GRNN model is used to investigate the relation between target layer and principle layer. In order to find the influence caused by the climate change in Afghanistan, we introduce a sub-indicator layer under the indicator layer, and the relationship between these two layers is solved based on Multiple Linear Regression. Finally, we get a comparison between the situation with climate change and without climate change. We find that in the situation that climate change is absent, Afghanistan's vulnerability is significantly better than the situation with climate change. Therefore, Afghanistan should step up its efforts to protect the environment in order to improve its vulnerability and achieve better development.
