Climate Risk Assessment for the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site

Climate Risk Assessment

Cover for Climate Risk Assessment for Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site

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).
