  3. 3. Process Stage 1Analysing Climate Vulnerability: InstitutionalHow is institutional climate vulnerability an issue?Local institutions shape how residents responded to environmental challenges… Becauseadaptation to climate change is local, it is critically important to understand better the role of localinstitutions in shaping adaptation and improving capacities of the most vulnerable social groups.Organisations where regulations and standards do not reflect climate change, where best practice ofadaptation examples are lacking and the support for the senior management is limited is found to bea principal barrier to adaptation to climate change. (Pelling et al, 2008). Pelling M, High C, Dearing J, Smith D, 2008, “Shadow spaces for social learning: A relational understanding of adaptive capacity to climate change within organizations.

  5. 5. Process Stage 1Analysing Climate Vulnerability: InstitutionalThe Concept of Institutional Climate VulnerabilityThe ability to cope with change and carry out necessaryadaptation measures.• A concept initially developed for assessing the ability of developing countries to make use of foreign aid.• The concept has gained a widespread use in the context of climate change adaptation; also in rich developed countries.

  6. 6. Process Stage 1Analysing Climate Vulnerability: InstitutionalHow to Assess Institutional Climate VulnerabilityDecide which institutional aspects are believed to be of localrelevance in relation to working with climate change adaptation.• Break down national statistics.• Collect relevant local statistics.• Conduct a local questionnaire/investigation.• Conduct qualitative interviews.

  7. 7. Process Stage 1Analysing Climate Vulnerability: InstitutionalHow to Assess Institutional Climate VulnerabilityHere are example indicators that could be used to assessmunicipal/institutional climate vulnerabilities• The presence of appropriately skilled staff• The presence of relevant expertise among representatives• The size of the relevant administrative capacity• The presence of adequate practices and procedures• The scope and quality of local risk assessments Climate AdaptationOnline Training Resource
  8. 8. Process Stage 1Analysing Climate Vulnerability: InstitutionalHow to Assess Institutional Climate VulnerabilityFinal Key Points• It is crucial not to underestimate the importance of institutional climate vulnerability.• Local institutions play a pivotal role in shaping adaptation and improving local capacity is very significant.• Increasing institutional capacity could be a necessary preparation before adaptation measures can be implemented.• It is necessary to evaluate regularly and systematically whether the identified capacities are actually the right ones to leverage the changes necessary to deal with climate change.
