Strengths, Assets, and Vulnerabilities

This resource contains information on identifying an institution’s strengths, assets, and vulnerabilities as part of the resilience assessment and planning process. Second Nature recommends beginning the resilience assessment by identifying strengths and assets. Strengths and assets are existing features, capacities, characteristics, and resources that will help a campus and its community cope with climate change. Vulnerabilities are hazards or existing conditions that can be exacerbated by climate change and interfere with a campus’s ability to thrive. This resource provides guidance on identifying strengths, assets, and vulnerabilities.
