Compendium of lessons learned from ARCC climate change vulnerability assessments

This report draws on experience gained through preparing assessments in the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Malawi, Senegal, and Uganda.  It is intended that the lessons compiled in this report constitute a reference tool that can be used by assessment designers to define the scope of a climate change vulnerability assessment (CCVA) and by key decision makers to introduce climate change adaptation into new or existing policies and programs. It argues that, before considering how to adapt to climate change, it is first necessary to understand the extent to which natural and human systems will be affected by various change scenarios.
