In this new framework, the factors to be included in risk assessment and in climate change scenarios are not fundamentally diﬀerent: both consider not only physical vulnerability of exposed systems, but also other relevant aspects such as systemic, social and economic vulnerability as well as the vulnerability of the natural environment that becomes relevant not only in the face of climate change but also in case of na-tech induced by natural events.
