Climate change vulnerability assessment: Greater Port Vila

This assessment provides a valuable baseline for understanding critical social, economic and environmental vulnerabilities, and the range of possible shocks and stresses that are likely to impact the city of Port Vila, Vanuatu. It was used extensively in the recovery from Cyclone Pam, and represents a critical first step moving towards the development of an urban resilience and climate adaptation action plan for the Greater Port Vila Area.

This report is based on knowledge generated through three visits to the city by both report authors, a variety of engagement activity (interviews, workshops and a transect walk), elicitation of local/traditional knowledge, collating and analysing available primary data, and a comprehensive desk-top analysis of relevant literature.
