Assessing current social vulnerability to climate change

This paper describes a participatory methodology used to assess the current vulnerability of local communities in the Congo Basinon the COBAM project. Vulnerability has been studied through the lenses of different dimensions: system and exposure units, dynamic processes, multiple threats, differential exposure, social capital and collective action. The purpose of this framework is to grasp the socio-ecological dynamics in the system over the past decades, in order to identify future actions for reducing vulnerability and to enhance adaptive capacity.
