Since the impacts of climate change are affecting cities and will continue do so for some time, conducting a vulnerability assessment is something all cities, regardless of size, should do. A vulnerability assessment establishes the nature and likelihood of the climate impact and the adaptive capacity of the community. This assessment becomes the basis for developing plans for a resilient city.
