Combining Vulnerabilities to Assess Local Vulnerability...

Combining Vulnerabilities to Assess Local Vulnerability

This module explores how to combine the three sets of vulnerabilities, natural, socio-economic and institutional into a matrix of !total vulnerability" and apply this locally.

  • 3. Process Stage 1Analysing Climate Vulnerability: CombinationCombining VulnerabilitiesWhat are Combined EffectsProjections of possible effects of climate change areoften assessed separately from other possible changesin nature and society.But arguably, economic and cultural change, such asrising levels of private wealth and a preference forbuilding houses on hilltops and along the shore foraesthetic reasons, obviously contributes to increasingclimate vulnerability.

  • 6. Process Stage 1Analysing Climate Vulnerability: CombinationWhat is Needed? • Local climate change scenarios -These could lead to a more informed understanding of how probable changes in local climatic conditions may affect nature and society. • Local societal change scenarios (a combinations of socio-economic and institutional vulnerability) -These could lead to a more informed understanding of how probable changes at a local societal level may alter the exposure to negative or positive impacts of climatic conditions.

  • 9. Process Stage 1Analysing Climate Vulnerability: CombinationCombining VulnerabilitiesFinal Key Points:Climate changes do not occur in isolation - there are an arrayof synergies that can alleviate and exacerbate the problem.Along with global environmental change, processes ofglobalisation, or global social change, are affecting regions too.For example, for many sub-Arctic communities the localeconomic system is narrowly based on a few industries.These communities are not only vulnerable to changes in thelocal environment regime shifts, but also to global marketfluctuations and political interventions.

  • 10. Process Stage 1Analysing Climate Vulnerability: CombinationCombining Vulnerabilities Final Key Points: • Excluding changes in nature and society is misleading because society is far from static – and it is thus a different society from that of today which, in a given year in the future, will be exposed to the climate of that time period. • Thus climate change cannot/ should not be separated from other drivers for change. • In many cases socio-economic vulnerability may compound issues of natural vulnerability e.g. population changes, demographic changes, rich/ poor divides, globalisation, and consumerism. • Some drivers could be viewed as positive, e.g. technology, localism, etc..
