The art and science of VCA

In addressing vulnerabilities, it is the communities themselves who have the capacity to make significant change.

Humanitarian organizations and communities are increasingly working together to find solutions to the problems that contribute to vulnerability.

One valuable methodology in the search for solutions is vulnerability capacity assessment (VCA).

This film shows three VCA workshops in three very different environments: Panama, Lesotho and Bangladesh.
