Description

Vulnerability in California’s Eastern Sierra presents the results of two technical analyses: a Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and a Natural Capital Assessment. The Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment looks at the severity and likelihood of how climatic changes to air quality, increased drought, flooding, wildfires, severe weather, etc. may affect specific populations and recreational activities that contribute to the Eastern Sierra's recreational economy. The Natural Capital Assessment takes an economic approach to estimate the natural capital currently available to the region that may be jeopardized by the impacts of climate change.
