Abstract

Measuring the sustainability of a community at a local level is fast gaining global prominence amongst policymakers, sustainability thinkers, and local stakeholders. It is crucial to measure sustainability to locate our present condition relative to conditions that have prevailed in the past and to develop relevant perspectives to frame actions for the future. Various indices have been used to measure sustainability. Every measure has its strengths and limitations, primarily due to sustainability’s contextual nature. This paper looks at sustainability from a climate change and risk management perspective and studies vulnerability as a sustainability indicator for an agroforestry ecosystem for two communities, Chandrapuri, Uttarakhand, and Guptapada, Odisha.
