Climate Vulnerability Index (CVI) Assessment for the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle at night, with the words "now is the time to act to protect our only planet" projected on to castle rock.

The CVI is a 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). This report is the second in a series of CVI assessments covering World Heritage Properties in Scotland.
