New Method Brief: Vulnerability Assessment in Madagascar

Our colleagues in Madagascar have prepared a new method brief about a vulnerability assessment they conducted in the Boeny region of north-western Madagascar. An integrated approach was used, combining a desk study of climate and economic data with a field study that took the knowledge and perceptions of local stakeholders into account.

In addition to the study, the impacts of climate change were discussed in a workshop in order to paint a better picture of vulnerabilities and adaptation needs. In this way, the approach can help focus resources on the most important adaptation needs and minimise the risk for maladaptation. The method brief is now available in the Vulnerability Assessment section of our knowledge base.
