The Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning (DEA&DP) of the Western Cape Government commissioned this piece of work to assess the feasibility of conducting a spatially explicit climate risk and vulnerability assessment of the Western Cape for improved planning and decision-making. The aim of the feasibility study was to determine the current state of knowledge, data and capacity of the various provincial stakeholders, and its relevance in assessing spatially explicit climate change hazards, risks and vulnerabilities. It further looked at opportunities to improve the current state of knowledge, data and capacity, identifying multiple, complementary pathways for engagements, processes and outputs going forward.
