This chapter provides an exploration of the emerging quantitative and qualitative methods that are utilized to evaluate the equitable distribution of resources in the advancement of climate adaptation. The quantitative section provides a mathematical model for evaluating the elasticity of dollars and the extent to which this elasticity can be utilized to weight the distributional benefits of any climate adaptation investment to a range of beneficiaries defined by the wealth status. The qualitative section highlights some emerging underwriting models that can support a qualitative assessment of the range of issues that speak to vulnerability and vulnerability reduction consistent with community resilience values.
