Flooding is a concern phenomenon, especially in the context of climate change (CC) and sea level rise. This work aimed to establish indicators used to assess vulnerability (V) due to inundation on the basis of considering the exposure (E), sensitivity (S) and adaptive capacity (AC) of a system. By literature review, data analysis, and expert methods, 33 indicators for assessing vulnerability due to inundation were established, including 4 E, 11 S (divided into 4 groups: society, economic, environment, and land use), and 18 AC indicators (divided into 4 groups: human, financial, infrastructure, and society). This work resulted in an important basis for comprehensive evaluation of vulnerability due to inundation in the context of CC and proposing suitable solutions.
