Description

The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, with input from the ICARP Technical Advisory Council, developed this resource guide as a starting point for practitioners to use when first considering how to define vulnerable communities in an adaptation context. The document includes the ICARP Technical Advisory Council’s definition of climate-vulnerable communities, a summary of existing statewide assessment tools that can be used to identify vulnerable communities in a climate adaptation context, additional indicators that could be used to assess underlying vulnerability on a case-by-case basis, and a list of process guides that can serve to aid agencies undertaking efforts to define vulnerable communities.
