Climate change vulnerability assessment: Greater Port Vila

Climate change vulnerability assessment: Greater Port Vila

This reports on a series of assessments made for the city of Port Vila, Vanuatu to measure the baseline for understanding critical social, economic and environmental vulnerabilities and range of risks in the face of climate change.

This report is based on knowledge generated through three visits to the city by both report authors, a variety of engagement activity (interviews, workshops and a transect walk), elicitation of local/traditional knowledge, collating and analysing available primary data, and a comprehensive desk-top analysis of relevant literature.

The authors propose eight steps towards the development of an urban resilience and climate adaptation action plan for the Greater Port Vila Area.
