The objective of this paper is to classify climate change vulnerability types among local governments and outline adaptive actions. The definition of vulnerability developed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is utilized to create the vulnerability indices of exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity. Vulnerability characteristics are divided into 4 types according to potential impact, which is a function of exposure and sensitivity, together with the adaptive capacity axis. The results show that Gimpo, Yeoncheon, Pocheon, Yeoju and Yangpyeong belong to Type 1 which is the most vulnerable with high climate change impact and low adaptive capacity. Type 2 includes areas such as Uiwang, Dongducheon, Hanam, Gwangmyeong where the impact of climate change is not high, but adaptive capacity is low. These areas are exposed to residual risk, and in some cases become more vulnerable due to ineffective policies. Type 3 indicates the areas that are endogenously influenced by climate change, but where risks caused by exposure to climate change can be overcome to some extent because of high adaptive capacity. Yangju. Pyeongtaek, Gapyeong, Paju, Osan and Goyang belong to Type 3. Finally the Type 4 areas of Gwacheon, Suwon, Anyang, Sungnam and Ansan are the areas where vulnerability is lowest. Although the types of vulnerability displayed are similar, variations occur based on system characteristics and adaptive strategies. Consequently it is necessary to differentiate the adaptation strategies and approaches according to geographic characteristics, land use, demographic characteristics, economic capability, and institutional capacity of each specific region.
