Scale Counts: A Review of Indicator-based Climate Change Vulnerability Assessments

September 2011

Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region are extremely susceptible and exposed to the threats of future climate change as effects have already been noted with an average increase in temperature of about 1°C, changes in precipitation, and more frequent and intense extreme events (United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) et al. 2010). There is an urgent need to strengthen the national capacity of each country in the region to identify and implement adaptation strategies that are based on locally derived information and vulnerability assessments.
