Royal Borough of Kingston Council
Due to increasing concern about the potential impacts of climate change, the Royal Borough of Kingston decided to perform a vulnerability, hazard, and risk analysis to assist emergency planning and preparedness as well as help shape climate change adaptation strategies. Our team incorporated aspects from several methods of performing a vulnerability analysis to produce the preferred method for Kingston. A social vulnerability index was calculated using variables identified by three of more sources as being indicative of increased vulnerability to identify the most socially and economically vulnerable areas in Kingston.
