The vulnerability studies allow identifying the areas of greatest danger from weather-related events (such as landslides, landslides, floods, etc.) based on the exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity of the analyzed territory. They are carried out through participatory processes and climatic scenarios that integrate climatic, environmental and socioeconomic variables at the same time.

The analyzes also allow estimating the risk of loss of ecosystem services and therefore the potential needs for adaptation to climate change. This exercise is the basis for designing and implementing nature-based solutions to strengthen the resilience of communities in urban and peri-urban systems.
