    Hoi An, Viet Nam: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

    Hoi An, Viet Nam: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

    In Vietnamese cities, as in other cities globally, urban centres are often located in highly risk-prone areas, such as in the coastal zone, along rivers or among mountains. Major types of infrastructure, such as roads, hospitals and water supply networks, as well as basic services such as healthcare, are vulnerable to the negative effects of climate change. In coastal areas, storm surges and sea-level rise can affect food supply and settlements. In Viet Nam, it is projected that sea levels will rise by 57 to 73 millimetres by 2100. More info →
    Honiara, Solomon Islands: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

    Honiara, Solomon Islands: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

    The vulnerability and adaptation assessment for Honiara is to provide national and local government decision makers and community leaders with information relevant to defining their adaptation priorities and plans, with the view of eventually integrating this into their regular programmes and budgets. The vulnerability and adaptation assessment will also provide guidance in identifying where and what critical actions are needed to effectively manage the unavoidable impacts of climate change.

    Lami Town, Republic of Fiji: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

    Lami Town, Republic of Fiji: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

    In Fiji, as in many areas in the Pacific, urban populations are located in highly hazard-prone areas in the coastal zone. Storm surges and sea-level rise can affect settlements, food production and infrastructure. A lack of basic services such as clean water supply and solid waste management can exacerbate the negative effects of climate change. Amid all this, the poorest are almost always the most vulnerable, as they have less access to infrastructure, basic services and social safety nets in the event of a disaster. More info →

    Islamabad, Pakistan: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

    Islamabad, Pakistan: Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment

    Climate change is severely impacting many countries around the world and Pakistan is no exception. With its largely arid geographical profile and resource scarcity the country is particularly vulnerable. From 1929-2005, the return period of disasters has become shorter, reducing from 56 years in 1929 to only 5 years in 2005. The country is susceptible to a wide range of hazards including landslides, floods, droughts and cyclones. The Global Climate Change Vulnerability Index (CCVI) compiled by Maplecroft ranked Pakistan as the 29th most vulnerable country over 2009-2010, and the 16th most vulnerable over 2010-11. More info →
