This Framework for Community-Based Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Assessments in mountain areas provides an analytical methodology for assessing environmental and socioeconomic changes affecting the livelihoods of rural, natural resource dependent  communities living in mountainous environments. It also gives guidance on how to gain a better understanding of the various forces which shape mountain communities’ vulnerabilities, and places a special focus on the capacities inherent to these communities for coping with and adapting to environmental and socioeconomic changes.
