Rapid Vulnerability Assessment Tool for MPA Managers from OpenChannels on Vimeo.

This North American Rapid Vulnerability Assessment Tool helps marine protected area managers evaluate the implications of climate change for the habitats of their sites. The tool was created as part of a project on climate assessment and adaptation by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation. It is available in English and Spanish and has three parts (a user guide, a set of blank worksheets, and a booklet containing sample completed worksheets), which used together allow marine protected area managers to conduct a rapid vulnerability assessment and adaptation strategy development process. 
 
This webinar covers: 
1) why the tool was created, 
2) an overview of the tool (how it works, what it looks like, where to find it), 
3) the experience of using the tool, and 
4) additional application of the tool. Learn more about the tool here.
