Resilience Metrics Facilitation Tools and Job Aids

Tool Resource
May 2020

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 has developed a planning and facilitation toolkit, Resilience Metrics. The toolkit includes a series of case studies as well as a suite of tools to advance conversations around successful adaptation.

About these resources

These facilitation tools and job aids are part of the Resilience Metrics toolkit, which helps communities define and track their climate adaptation progress. These tools and activities are intended to support each of the six steps in the process of developing and using resilience metrics. See how facilitation tools and job aids align with these steps.
