This report describes outcomes from a workshop in Orkney, Scotland (April 2019) to apply the Climate Vulnerability Index (CVI).
The CVI is a new methodology developed to rapidly assess climate impacts – both to Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) and the associated ‘community’ (local, domestic and international) – for all types of World Heritage properties (natural, cultural or mixed). In its first application to a cultural World Heritage property, the CVI process was undertaken for the ‘Heart of Neolithic Orkney’ (HONO).
