Abstract

The Sorsogon Climate Change Assessment examines the climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation capacity of a small coastal city in the Philippines - Sorsogon City in the Bicol Region. The assessment uses a participatory Vulnerability and Adaptation process that looks into the city’s exposure, sensitivity, and adaptive capacity vis-a-vis projected climate scenarios, previous climate related disaster events and people’s account of the past events and observations.

The summary is based on the report titled “Sorsogon City Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation Assessment”, an initial output of the city’s activities under the Cities and Climate Change Initiative.
