Climate Vulnerability Assessment

Fuss & O’Neill’s climate resilience and sustainability professionals recognize that providing the optimal solution requires first fully understanding the problems. Understanding vulnerability to both rapid shocks (e.g., river flooding and heatwaves) and chronic stressors (e.g., sea level rise and increasing annual temperatures) is critical to identifying and then prioritizing actions that increase adaptive capacity for communities, businesses, and organizations.

Fuss & O’Neill’s approach to climate vulnerability assessment uses established and emerging methodologies and protocols; accounts for applicable future projections for temperature, precipitation, and sea level rise; and incorporates stakeholder input. We consult with, and listen to, those who know best how climate change has impacted their homes, businesses, recreational spaces, and ways of life. We understand the value of centering the voices of those most impacted by climate change, including vulnerable populations that have been historically underrepresented in the decision-making process.
