Vulnerability. This section will explore the distinct approaches to vulnerability that the disasters community and the climate change community have used to frame their analysis. Broaching these distinctions from the bottom-up and the top-down, comparisons will be made at the local and the national levels on the approaches they take and the lessons they derive. At both scales and in both domains, characteristics used to measure vulnerability and policy prescriptions will be investigated. Have these approaches succeeded? Looking ahead 30 years, how fit are they? Where analysis on vulnerability has been more focused at the local or the global level, this section will determine if more can, or should, be done to expand it to different scales in the future.
