"Coastal Vulnerability Indicator Library", in the core of RISC-KIT's objectives as it will be included in RISC-KIT's Toolkit and tested in 11 case studies, is now ready and available to download through the Project Results section of the website.

 

"The Resilience-Increasing Strategies for Coasts – Toolkit (RISC-KIT) FP7 EU project (2013- 2017) aims to produce a set of three innovative and EU-coherent open-source and openaccess methods, tools and management approaches (the RISC-KIT) in support of coastal managers, decision-makers and policy makers to reduce risk and increase resilience to lowfrequency, high impact hydro-meteorological events. Risk is defined within this project as the product of the probability of a hazard, the exposure of receptors and their vulnerability. Representing the vulnerability and the potential role of DRR in their reduction is crucial for supporting the decision.

 

As such a specific task of the RISC-KIT project (Task 2.2) is dedicated to developing a Library of Vulnerability Indicators to input in the RISC-KIT Toolkit and to test the tools on 11 case studies. The deliverable “Coastal Vulnerability Indicator Library” is composed of a Microsoft Excel database and a guidance document. The deliverable introduces the necessary concepts and methods, provides a review and a collection of existing indicators and proposes methodologies for developing new indicators.

 

The Library has been constructed around four categories: Built Environment, Population, Ecosystem and Systems. The Library also identifies Disaster Reduction Measures influencing vulnerability and proposes methods to include within the assessment of vulnerability."

 

D2.2 "Coastal Vulnerability Indicator Library" includes a Guidance Document [.pdf] with analytical directions and guidelines for the use of the Coastal Vulnerability Indicator Library [.xlsx].
