Successful climate adaptation planning calls on communities to define success and identify metrics to track progress toward a climate resilient future. Building on their experiences hosting workshops as part of the Successful Adaptation Indicators and Metrics effort, a 2018 catalyst project team developed a planning and facilitation toolkit, Resilience Metrics.

About this resource

The Resilience Metrics toolkit is a collection of tools, techniques, and tactics for those within and beyond the National Estuarine Research Reserve System to address challenges related to extreme climatic and weather events and changing environmental conditions. This web-based resource focuses on defining and tracking adaptation success and progress. It provides a framework that can be tailored to particular community and stakeholder needs, along with a collection of resources for adaptation planning, including facilitation tools and job aids, and a series of case studies.

The Resilience Metrics toolkit provides guidance and practical resources that adaptation professionals can use to lead communities through a six step process for developing and using indicators of adaptation progress. These steps are:

  1. Bounding and Assessment Context
  2. Visioning Success
  3. Exploring & Identifying Indicators
  4. Selecting Indicators & Identifying Metrics
  5. Tracking Indicators & Metrics
  6. Using Indicators & Metrics
