Repository of Adaptation Indicators: Real Case Examples from National Monitoring and Evaluation Systems

The repository of adaptation indicators is intended to illustrate possible adaptation indicators and their application context, thereby supporting the context – specific formulation of indicators. The repository systematically presents various indicators for four focus areas:

  • climate parameters
  • climate change impacts
  • adaptation actions
  • adaptation results

The examples have been taken from currently proposed national adaptation M&E systems (i.e. they reflect the first generation of indicators). For each indicator, its adaptation relevance, limitations, data needs and sources are described. The repository is meant to illustrate possible indicators – their applicability to other contexts needs to be assessed on a case by case basis. It is an output of the study on “Monitoring and Evaluating Adaptation at Aggregated Levels: A comparative analysis of ten systems.”

In addition to this PDF, the repository is also available as an Excel file via the Adaptation Community.
