|Abstract:||After reviewing relevant climate impact assessment guidelines derived from those of the United States Country Study Program (USCSP), the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and UNEP, the author adopted a set of impact assessment steps towards a methodological procedure for assessing vulnerability and adaptation (V and A) in a Bangladesh coastal cyclone-prone area. This paper classifies and prioritizes the intensity of V and A issues through weighting index values of two recent cyclones: 'Sidr' in 2007 and 'Aila' in 2009. This study offers a model using V and A techniques ideal for immediate policy-making in order to reduce future vulnerability at local level.|
