Assessing risks and vulnerabilities to climate change

Self-check for assessing risks and vulnerabilities to climate change

The following key issues are suggested as essential when assessing risks and vulnerabilities:

  •  A systematic overview on past weather events, their consequences and response actions in place
  •  Understanding of future climate change gained
  •  Non-climatic stress factors identified and considered
  •  Main concerns are identified that require an adaptation response
  •  Transboundary issues taken into account
  •  Knowledge gaps and uncertainties in climate change summarized and made explicit
