Community Health and Climate Change Vulnerability Maps

Categories: Health, Risk Assessment, Tools

Vancouver Coastal Health

This mapping project was created to help identify the differences between communities in the Metro Vancouver region in terms of their vulnerability to four hazards:

  • Higher summer temperatures
  • Coastal and riverine flooding
  • Wildfire smoke events
  • Ozone air pollution

Community vulnerability is defined and mapped here as a function of three key factors: its exposure to a hazard, its sensitivity to that hazard, and its adaptive capacity, or its ability to manage or adapt to the hazard.
