This is a nice tool for evaluating and communicating climate risk and appears to be a commercial product. There are other systems available that are used for formal vulnerability assessments at municipalities to evaluate against standard: for example, in water sector J-100 standard is used and EPA has a tool and there's PARRE.org. Climate.iq is broader and the presentation is very nice. The biggest question is, is the Climate Colab the right place to promote mature commercial products? Furthermore, this proposal is very US-centric.

Congratulations! Your proposal, Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Strategies for Property and Community, in the Adaptation contest, has been selected to advance as a Semi-Finalist. Thank you for your work on this very important issue. We're proud of your proposal, and we hope that you are too. Again, congratulations!

Please see below the following comments to enhance your proposal:

This proposal is extremely detailed and well articulated. This tool can both empower individuals to assess and address potential climate change impacts, and inform practitioners (planners, engineers) about the risks facing their communities. Both quantitative and qualitative data are employed, which is particularly crucial if vulnerability is to be assessed effectively. Our sense is that the proponents are more comfortable with collection and analysis of quantitative data, however, so the details of the qualitative methodology require more thought, in our view. In addition, the quantitative data related to exposure appear to be derived from historical trend, which of course will not hold steady in a changing climate. It is not clear how the proponents will gather downscaled climate scenario data, nor how they would attach probabilities to various scenarios.

Furthermore, there are other systems available that are used for formal vulnerability assessments at municipalities to evaluate against standards. For example, in water sector J-100 standard is used and EPA has a tool and there's PARRE.org. Climate.iq is broader and the presentation is very nice. Biggest question, is Climate Colab the right place to promote mature commercial products.



All the best,
