Solecki, W., L. Tryhorn, A. DeGataetano, and D. Major, 2011: Vulnerability and adaptation. In Responding to Climate Change in New York State: The ClimAID Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Adaptation: Technical Report. C. Rosenzweig, W. Solecki, A. DeGaetano, M. O'Grady, S. Hassol, and P. Grabhorn, Eds. New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, pp. 49-60.

The objective of this chapter is to introduce the issues of vulnerability and adaptation as a framework for analysis of the potential impacts and adaptation responses to climate change in New York State. Within the ClimAID assessment, vulnerability and adaptation are key integrating themes and are examined directly by each of the sectors.

This chapter outlines definitions and concepts associated with climate change vulnerability and adaptation. It also provides background on approaches to vulnerability and adaptation assessments and the different factors that contribute to both in the context of New York State. Details of the approaches used in the ClimAID assessment, as well as a description of the stakeholder engagement undertaken, are provided. Toward the end of the chapter, guidelines for evaluation and prioritization of vulnerability and adaptation actions are introduced.
