Climate risk communication: a guideline for project practitioners working with the vulnerability sourcebook and its risk supplement
This guideline offers insights and lessons learned on the preparation and implementation of climate risk communication approaches. It is based on the experience of selected GIZ-implemented projects that were in the process of implementation between 2020 and 2022. In addition, complementary publications from GIZ, partner institutions, communication science and related disciplines were consulted. It is meant as a guideline for the members of the Community of Practice Climate Risk (CoP CR), for experts of projects within the wider network of German Cooperation for Sustainable Development and their partners. It is relevant for projects that are tasked with the preparation and implementation of climate risk and vulnerability assessments (CRVAs), especially those following the GIZ Vulnerability Sourcebook and the Risk Supplement approach. The guideline is addressed to specialists, consultants and scientists who are conducting such analyses. It provides an orientation on how to (co-)create, prepare and effectively communicate the results of CRVAs in a user-friendly and target group-oriented way.
