Climate change vulnerability assessment

64Px - 193

To initiate adaptation planning for climate change, stakeholders need to know the nature of vulnerability, in terms of who and what are vulnerable, to what stresses, and in what way, and also what is the capacity of the system to adapt to changing conditions.

ArcticNorth works at the grassroots level to document and describe how people experience and respond to changing conditions that are relevant to them and in the context of multiple non-climate factors (e.g. socio-economic conditions, governance, livelihoods, culture, etc.).
