Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis: Handbook

CARE’s most popular practitioner tool: Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis. A community-level tool that integrates climate change into a wider participatory vulnerability analysis.

By combining local knowledge with scientific data, the CVCA process builds people’s understanding about climate risks and adaptation strategies. It provides a framework for dialogue within communities, as well as between communities and other stakeholders (e.g. local and national government agencies). The results provide a solid foundation for the identification of practical strategies to facilitate community-based adaptation to climate change.
