Vulnerability Assessment Resources- ALC3184
This course is based on the January 2011 publication “Scanning the Conservation Horizon: A Guide to Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment” (http://www.nwf.org/vulnerabilityguide). The Guidance is a product of an expert working group on climate change vulnerability assessment convened by the National Wildlife Federation in collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
