pasturelands Multiple studies show that reindeer avoid areas with anthropogenic activities for up to several kilometers and females with calves are particularly sensitive to encroachments ( Skarin and Åhman 2014 ; Anttonen et al. 2011 ). The herder’s ability to adapt to animal avoidance behavior by using alternative pastures and migration routes is limited (e.g., Risvoll and Hovelsrud 2016 ; Eira et al. 2018 ).

Other influential and related works include the Crichton’s Risk Triangle ( Crichton 1999 ) the Climate Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis Handbook ( Daze et al. 2009 ) and the Methods for the Improvement of Vulnerability Assessment in Europe (MOVE) framework ( Birkmann et al. 2013 ). Moreover, other older studies, and more recent ones as well, support the integration of CCA
