Risk Supplement to the Vulnerability Sourcebook Guidance on how to apply the Vulnerability Sourcebook’s approach with the new IPCC AR5 concept of climate risk

Description:

This guidance is a follow up of the previous document Vulnerability Sourcebook, which is available online at: http://www.adaptationcommunity.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/GIZ-2017_Risk-Supplement-to-the-Vulnerability-Sourcebook.pdf

It provides guidance on how to apply the Vulnerability Sourcebook’s approach with the new IPCC AR5 concept of climate risk. It contains the conceptual framework for performing standardized assessments of vulnerability to climate change, the core guidelines with eight modules, individual steps within each module, and a brief chapter on monitoring and evaluation. The IPCC AR5 introduced the new concept on risk, bot only by using new terms and new definitions for old terms, but it follows a different underlying philosophy. As a consequence, basing applications of the Vulnerability Sourcebook on the AR5 risk concept needs more than merely re-naming key terms. It requires clarifying potential inconsistencies, highlighting ambiguities and providing solutions for its operational use. This guidance would help adaptation practitioners by filling this gaps.
