Updated VCA guidance note

12 June 2012
by RC Climate Centre

Centre's informal guidance note on "How can climate change be considered in Vulnerability and Capacity Assessments?" has been used widely by National Societies in their efforts to incorporate climate change in the tools they apply for their community-based programmes, and has also served as inspiration to a range of other organisations.

The guidance note is a 'living document' and we have now made an updated (June 2012) version available here
