Climate change Vulnerability Indicators

Do you want to know what are the vulnerability indicators of ?

You are in the right place.

Within over one year of spending numerous hours reading and searching literatures in the net about vulnerability to climate change, finally my research is over and I have to share it with the world.

I was just concern of how our world is coming to an end, of course no matter how many times we will promote to save the environment, still this world will end.

However, the reason I am still advocating climate change education to everyone is to prepare ourselves for whatever things that will took place.

For me, everything is already written.

What we can do is to adapt and change our thoughts and actions towards our environment.

Our actions today maybe too late, but at least we have done something good in our generation.

Anyway, in order to mitigate and adapt to climate change, we should conduct a vulnerability assessment.

In this vulnerability assessment, we will know which areas in our community are vulnerabile to climate change.

To know which areas are vulnerable is to have some indicators and these are available locally in your Community  Based Monitoring System.

In my research, I used the the list of indicators from the study of Herminia and Yusuf 2009 which is a funded project by EEPSEA.

The list includes 37 indicators mostly from the local database of the community.

If you have CBMS data in your city or municipality, you can get to know these indicators. These indicators are categorized also to address the sub indices of climate change vulnerability based on IPCC framework.

Are you ready to know the vulnerability indicators?

By the way, these indicators are the ones that is used in my software for creating CCVI.

Thanks to the study of Herminia and Yusuf (2009) which gave me an inspiration to do such a piece of valuable software.
