This module addresses the following:
-The importance of assessing vulnerabilities to today’s climate
-How to identify current adaptation deficits
Assessment of the vulnerability to today’s climate is a necessary starting point
– Vulnerability to natural variation in today’s climate may be considerable due to a range of physical and institutional limitations, including the lack of maintenance for buildings and other physical infrastructure.
Adaptation deficits should be dealt first
– If adaptation deficits are not dealt with, the task of adaptation to the future climate will be more severe. It will also increase the risk of mal-adaptive measures being implemented.
