Vulnerability & Resilience
• Vulnerability
• the degree to which human populations are susceptible to, and unable to
cope with, adverse impacts of ecological or climate change due to both
environmental and individual factors
• Resilience
• the capacity of an individual, community, or institution to dynamically
and effectively respond to shifting climate impact circumstances while
continuing to function and prosper
• Characteristics of resilience or vulnerability co-exist at the same time
in any community or individual.
• Together, the intersection of resources, including social connection,
coping mechanisms, exposures, and susceptibility that will determine
the extent to which climate change impacts health and well-being.
