Review of Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment (VCA) use in relation to climate change and urban risk issues

This report was commissioned by the IFRC to re-examine the Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment process in the context of increased institutional experience in using VCA, along with changing risk patterns. In particular the review is to assess the relevance of VCA for dealing with urban risks and climate change. It looks closely at the continued relevance of the framework, practices and supporting materials, and the potential for adapting VCA to incorporate climate change and be of use in urban areas.
