Vulnerability and Adaptation
Assessment Hands-on
Training Workshop
Communication of V&A Analysis
in National Communications
1A.1
Outline



Review COP decision on V&A reporting
Discuss general guidance for reporting
Address reporting on




Methods
Vulnerability
Adaptation
Final thoughts
1A.2
UNFCCC Decision 17/CP.8
Reporting Guidelines


32. Non-Annex I Parties are encouraged to provide
information on the scope of their vulnerability and
adaptation assessment, including identification of
vulnerable areas that are most critical
33. Non-Annex I Parties are encouraged to include a
description of approaches, methodologies and tools
used, including scenarios for the assessment of impacts
of, and vulnerability and adaptation to, climate change,
as well as any uncertainties inherent in these
methodologies.
1A.3
UNFCCC Decision 17/CP.8
Reporting Guidelines


34. Non-Annex I Parties are encouraged to provide
information on their vulnerability to the impacts of, and
their adaptation to, climate change in key vulnerable
areas. Information should include key findings, and direct
and indirect effects arising from climate change, allowing
for an integrated analysis of the country’s vulnerability to
climate change.
35. Non-Annex I Parties are encouraged to provide
information on and, to the extent possible, an evaluation
of, strategies and measures for adapting to climate
change, in key areas, including those which are of the
highest priority.
1A.4
UNFCCC Decision 17/CP.8
Reporting Guidelines

36. Where relevant, Parties may report on the
use of policy frameworks, such as national
adaptation programmes, plans and policies for
developing and implementing adaptation
strategies and measures.
1A.5
Communication


The National Communication (NC) needs to clearly
communicate vulnerability and adaptation findings
 Fine to describe methods and results of
analyses
 But, needs to synthesize and integrate results
The NC needs to clearly communicate
 Who and what is vulnerable
 How that may vary across time and
geographic region
 Who will be adapting to climate change
 What is needed to be done to adapt
 Where and when
1A.6
First Thing: Remember Purpose



Who is the audience for the NC?
What kind of information do they need?
How can it most effectively be presented to
them?
1A.7
Reporting on Methods

National communications should include a
description of methods used



Remembering that the audience may be
nontechnical
The description should be concise
Details can be left to appendixes or
supporting documents
1A.8
Example: Methodology Discussion
from The Gambia’s FNC
1A.9
Reporting on Vulnerabilities


Clearly presenting results
Presenting who and what is most vulnerable
1A.10
Clearly Presenting
Vulnerability Findings

The key is



Organization
Clarity
Simplicity
1A.11
Seychelles First NC
1A.12
Tanzania’s First NC
1A.13
From Users Manual
1A.14
Relative Direction, Magnitude,
and Certainty of Impacts
1A.15
Reporting
Adaptation Results


Present identified adaptations in a clear
manner
Evaluate or rank adaptations

Consider possible effectiveness within your
country
1A.16
Seychelles: Adaptations
1A.17
South Africa: Evaluation
1A.18
Conclusions



A clear synthesis and reporting of results is
important
Analytic methods exist for analyzing and
ranking adaptations
National Communications should report on




Methods
Vulnerabilities
Adaptation measures
Simple methods for reporting results can be
most effective in clearly communicating them
