Assessing risks and vulnerabilities to climate change

This step aims to develop a comprehensive picture of current and future climate change risks in an urban area as well as further stress factors to be expected. It will also help identify opportunities arising from climate change, and provide information on how to assess adaptive capacity and cope with uncertainty. Adaptation cannot be planned solely on the basis of climate projections; information on risk and vulnerabilities is also needed to determine how the climate interacts with socio-economic issues.
