Comprehensive risk and vulnerability assessments are critical to develop a picture of current and future climate risks and opportunities. Hear information on how to assess adaptive capacity and cope with uncertainty with a particular spotlight on water security within risk and vulnerability assessments. Dale Sands, who co-chairs the United Nations ARISE Global Board (in association with UNDRR) will share resources and tools that can support cities in conducting CRVAs. The City of Cascais, Portugal will share their experiences producing a risk and vulnerability assessment and we will hear from the CDP Director of Water Security on the methods of integrating water into effective climate risk and vulnerability assessments.
