Fritzsche, Kerstin; Stefan Schneiderbauer, Philip Bubeck, Stefan Kienberger, Mareike Buth, Marc Zebisch and Walter Kahlenborn 2014: The Vulnerability Sourcebook: Concept and guidelines for standardised vulnerability assessments. Bonn and Eschborn: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.

The "Vulnerability Sourcebook", which was commissioned by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and developed jointly by adelphi and the European Academy of Bozen (EURAC), offers a comprehensive tool for conducting regular vulnerability assessments. The Sourcebook provides a standardised approach to vulnerability assessments covering a broad range of sectors and topics (e.g. water sector, agriculture, fisheries, different ecosystems) as well as different spatial levels (community, sub-national, national) and time horizons (e.g. current vulnerability or vulnerability in the medium- to long-term). In the resourceful annex technical and adaptation experts will find a wide range of practical tools and templates.
