Vulnerability studies

The key initial stage of CityAdapt

Climate vulnerability is defined as the extent to which a system is capable of facing the negative effects of climate change or extreme events. Given the current situation of urban development in Latin America and the Caribbean, vulnerability assessments emerge as a necessity for climate change adaptation planning.

Vulnerability studies are necessary to identify current and potential hotspots, entry points for intervention and to track changes in vulnerability, adaptation monitoring and evaluation (GIZ, 2017).
