Abstract or Summary
  • Vulnerability assessments play an important role in the climate change adaptation process in that they link physical changes (either current or projected) with the ability of aquatic and human systems to cope or benefit from such change. In general, a vulnerability assessment helps to target adaptation actions by better understanding who are the vulnerable people\species and how their vulnerability can be reduced, where the vulnerable ecosystems are and whether resource management can improve their capacity to adapt, where the economic consequences of vulnerability of fishery systems will be felt most and how we can plan to minimize those consequences and where climate change will create new opportunities and bring benefits and, importantly, for whom. This talk will provide a brief introduction to vulnerability schools of thought and some examples of how vulnerability assessments have been applied within fisheries and aquaculture systems.
