Vulnerability and Consequences Adaptation Planning Scenarios (VCAPS)

2011

Vulnerability and Consequences Adaptation Planning Scenarios (VCAPS) is a facilitated, scenario-building process that enables users to construct and display causal pathways that link climate stressors, vulnerabilities, and consequences with appropriate local adaptation options. The Social and Environmental Research Institute (SERI) has developed this participatory mediated modeling process with the initial goal of examining the support VCAPS can offer climate change adaptation planning by local decision makers from coastal communities.
