Assessing Local Vulnerability to Climate Change in Agriculture for Tocantins, Brazil

We develop a reliable indicator of local vulnerability that captures its dynamics and the criterion of tractability and comparability across time and location. This indicator will allow identifying main vulnerability drivers and planning policies to increase system resiliency as well as designing climate change adaptation policies at the local level. We propose a reliable indicator of vulnerability to climate change in agriculture that allows assessing within the system the main components of vulnerability at a local level: stressors exposure (SE), stressors sensitivity (SS), and adaptive capacity (AC). Also, this indicator will allow identifying main vulnerability drivers and planning policies to increase system resiliency as well as designing climate change adaptation policies at the local level.
