How to do a VCA: A practical step-by-step guide for Red Cross and Red Crescent staff and volunteers

This document is intended as a simple and practical guide for National Society staff and volunteers who wish to undertake a local-level VCA, as part of their community programming strategy.

Vulnerability and capacity assessment (VCA) was developed to enable National Societies to help communities understand the hazards that affect them and take appropriate measures to minimize their potential impact. These measures are based on communities own skills, knowledge and initiatives – thereby preventing these hazards turning into disasters.
