Climate Risk Assessment for Wadden Sea World Heritage property
Application of the Climate Vulnerability Index – Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) Vulnerability
This report describes outcomes of the first workshop of key international Wadden Sea experts representing different scientific and academic sectors centred around the OUV of the property, held in Hamburg, Germany (10–11 February 2020). This workshop applied the first phase of the Climate Vulnerability Index (CVI) for the Wadden Sea. The CVI is a methodology to rapidly assess vulnerability through expert appraisal of the best-available climate science, applicable to all types of World Heritage properties (natural, cultural or mixed).
