Handbook and Guide on Vulnerability Resilience Profile

The Handbook and Guide provides guidance on a 5 steps analytical framework known as the Vulnerability-Resilience Profile (VRP). The VRP tool is designed to focus on monitoring and evaluation of progress of the commitments to sustainable development as stated under the Barbados Programme of Action (BPoA) and the Mauritius Strategy for Implementation (MSI). The tool addresses the vulnerability-resilience nexus and consists of an assessment of a country’s vulnerabilities and its capacity to cope with these vulnerabilities. The vulnerability assessment would be based on both qualitative and quantitative indicators and indices that reflect a country’s vulnerabilities to threats in terms of the three dimensions of sustainable development: environmental, economic and social. The resilience assessment would evaluate the measures that strengthen the coping capacity of the country to prevent, adapt to, or mitigate these exogenous and endogenous risks and threats for each of the three dimensions of sustainable development in term of actions at three levels: national, regional and international.
