Climate resilience framework: Training materials - Series 2: Understanding vulnerability & risk

Source(s):  Institute for Social and Environmental Transition - International (ISET)

Series 2 is the second of three series that comprise the Climate Resilience Framework: Training Materials, which were designed to provide city stakeholders with the information and tools necessary to design a climate resilience strategy.

Series 2 systematically walks the newly formed climate working group through some of the steps involved in conceptualizing, compiling, analyzing and utilizing an initial city-wide vulnerability and climate risk study. This series is designed for a community and/or working group with little previous experience conducting climate vulnerability and risk assessments. However, communities that have conducted vulnerability and risk assessments previously will find that this series contains tips that help re-evaluate previously collected data in a more systematic manner, allowing clear identification of gaps.

The Climate Resilience Framework is a conceptual framework for simplifying and analyzing complex relationships between people, systems, institutions and climate change. The framework helps clarify factors that need to be included in the diagnosis of climate vulnerability, structures the systematic analysis of vulnerability in ways that clearly identify the entry points for responding, and supports strategic planning to build resilience to climate change.
