Considering climate change in Vulnerability Capacity Assessments (VCAs)

25/10/2010 - by RC/RC Climate Centre

The Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre has created a guidance note for VCA practitioners who wish to consider climate change in their work with communities. This builds upon guidance included in the  Community Risk Reduction section of the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Guide. There are a number of opportunities to consider climate change before, during or after a VCA that are outlined in these documents. The guidance note is an evolving document and will be updated according to further feedback and field experience. Feedback is welcomed: climatecentre@redcross.nl.
