The Vulnerability Sourcebook

Over the past week, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (GIZ), published a new guidance document for climate change vulnerability assessment. Building on the approach developed by Germany’s ‘Vulnerability Network’ for assessing domestic vulnerability across different sectors at the various administrative levels in Germany, the Vulnerability Sourcebook offers a methodological approach to vulnerability assessments and their application for monitoring and evaluation of adaptation. It is illustrated with examples and lessons learned from pilot applications in Bolivia, Pakistan, Burundi and Mozambique. Thus, it offers a compendium of practical and scientific knowledge on vulnerability assessments.
