enhanced VULNERABILITY AND CAPACITY ASSESSMENT 

Version 1 - for field testing 

 

Welcome to the EVCA platform!

The Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment is a long-standing approach of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement better known by its acronym ‘VCA’. It is a participatory process developed for communities to become more resilient through the assessment and analysis of the risks they face and the identification of actions to reduce these risks.

 

EVCA stands for enhanced VCA. Improvements have been made based on an extensive review of the VCA guidance and toolkit and its application within the RCRC.

 

This platform has been created to make the guidance, tools and other resources easily accessible to staff and volunteers. It is hoped it will support both seasoned practitioners and newcomers in the facilitation of EVCAs. 

The EVCA guidance was made possible thanks to the support of:
