The report is now online from the workshop Vulnerability, Resilience, and Adaptation Concepts and Practice.
This workshop focused on climate change resilience thinking for local governments, and was held January 29th 2016. The workshop was hosted by the Social Vulnerability team of the Coastal Cities at Risk (CCaR) project, which was a five-year research project focusing on climate change responses in four major coastal cities. Workshop participants represented a cross-section of local organizations and governments involved in climate change adaptation planning.
The workshop included discussion of various understandings of vulnerability, resilience, and adaptation responses. One major conclusion from this day was that adaptation planning must include consideration of vulnerability from perspectives of sensitivity to risk and adaptive capacity as well as physical risk.
