The Vulnerability Sourcebook
Vulnerability Sourcebook seeks to provide a step-by-step guide for designing and implementing vulnerability assessments suitable for each of these areas. Building on the approach developed by Germany’s ‘Vulnerability Network’ for assess-ing domestic vulnerability across different sectors at the various administrative levels in Germany, the Vulnerability Sourcebook offers a practical and scientifically sound methodological approach to vulnerability assessments and their application for moni-toring and evaluation of adaptation. It is illustrated with examples and lessons learned from pilot applications in Bolivia, Pakistan, Burundi and Mozambique. It thus offers a rich compendium of practical and scientific knowledge on vulnerability assessments.
