National level climate vulnerability assessment report to be released tomorrow

A national level climate vulnerability assessment report will be released tomorrow. The report is titled ‘Climate Vulnerability Assessment for Adaptation Planning in India Using a Common Framework’. It identifies the most vulnerable states and districts in India with respect to current climate risk and key drivers of vulnerability. This will help Policymakers in initiating appropriate climate actions.

It will also benefit climate-vulnerable communities across India through development of better-designed climate change adaptation projects. A total of 94 representatives from 24 states and 2 Union Territories participated in the nation-wide exercise. It was jointly supported by the Department of Science & Technology and the Swiss Agency for Development & Cooperation.

While climate vulnerability assessments for various states and districts already exist, they cannot be compared to each other as the framework used for assessments are different. To solve this issue, a Common Framework for Vulnerability Assessment for the Himalayan region was developed. Based on the positive feedback received and its usefulness, it was decided to roll out the climate vulnerability assessment exercise for the entire country.
