Risk Supplement to the Vulnerability Sourcebook

The Risk Supplement to the Vulnerability Sourcebook (PDF) introduces the IPCC AR5 risk concept and provides guidelines on how to conduct risk assessments using the Vulnerability Sourcebook’s approach.

The Vulnerability Sourcebook (PDF) provides step-by-step guidelines to conduct robust vulnerability assessments according to the IPCC concept of vulnerability. Since its publication in 2014, it has been widely used for vulnerability assessments in the framework of climate change adaptation planning from the local to the national level. The Fifth IPCC Assessment Report (AR5) moved from focusing on vulnerability to focusing on risk of climate-related impacts that may harm a system. To account for this change, in 2017 this Risk Supplement has been developed.
