Priority Activity 4:

Improve the robustness of VIA assessments, by developing revised technical guidance on tools and research methodologies

PROVIA has released PROVIA Guidance on Assessing Vulnerability, Impacts and Adaptation to Climate Change dedicated to climate adaptation planners. The guidance helps adaptation practitioners assess vulnerability, impacts and adaptation, covering the wide array of approaches, methods and tools with focus on practical implication to the development of specific, sectorial or place-based approaches with case studies and good practices for effective adaptation.

The recommendations of the publication were featured at the nineteenth session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP 19, November 2013, Warsaw, Poland).

A summary was produced to provide an overview of the PROVIA guidance report. Another report ‘Supporting NAP development with the PROVIA Guidance: A user companion was also produced to explain how the PROVIA Guidance can be used to better understand key concepts and available methods and tools to support UNFCCC National Adaptation Planning Process.
