Source(s):  Adaptation Knowledge Platform Secretariat

This paper points out gaps in using sectoral vulnerability and adaptation assessment for landscape adaptation planning, and proposes instead an extended framework for climate change vulnerability and adaptation with a holistic view of the landscape. The paper is divided into four sections: (i) section one identifies gaps in climate change vulnerability and adaptation assessments; (ii) section two proposes a new framework for vulnerability and adaptation assessments and outlines six steps to the process; (iii) section three presents a case study from Krabi Province, Thailand and identifies the key climate concerns by sector (agriculture, tourism, and inshore fisheries); and (iv) section four concludes the paper, highlighting the need for more research to provide a more comprehensive perspective to support adaptation planning.
