The 55 countries participating in the U.S. Country Studies Program are using a variety of methods to assess their vulnerability to climate change and the potential for implementing adaptation options. Many of the countries are using models and methodologies provided by the U.S. Country Studies while others are using other methods and methodologies (Table 2.1). In all cases the countries are adapting the models and methodologies to their unique national circumstances. This chapter briefly describes those models and methodologies made available by the U.S. Country Studies Program. Readers will not find these models and methodologies described elsewhere in this report.
