What is VCA: an introduction to vulnerability and capacity assessment
International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
Number of pages
This booklet is a new edition of 'Vulnerability and capacity assessment: an international federation guide' and shows some of the progress made in the use of VCA since the guide was first published in 1999. It illustrates how programmes can be better integrated with other projects so that they support each other.
The booklet also summarizes and represents the experience of many national societies from around the world. Information about their activities has been collected and shared by Red Cross Red Cresent staff and International Federation delegates over the past ten years.
The booklet forms part of a set of publications that support the VCA process for national societies: The others are: How to do VCA; VCA toolkit; and VCA training.
