This document from the Resilience Roadmap project recommends a common approach to
developing key performance indicators (KPIs) for climate change adaptation and resilience
planning, drawing upon current science and tools referenced throughout. The work is
particularly aimed to support climate adaptation and resilience planning by US federal
agencies and thus presents principally US national-level data and online resources.
The approach is broadly applicable across agencies, sectors, and systems and can also
be applied by state or local planners and adaptation/resilience practitioners. The
KPI development approach includes:
1. Setting the scope and goals of climate adaptation and resilience planning, following
a stepwise process.
2. Developing KPIs to track performance and guide adaptive management, following a
core set of ten process and five outcome indicators.
This methods brief includes contributions from Beth Gibbons, Lara Hansen, Jesse Keenan,
Susanne Moser, Mark Rupp, Josh Sawislak, Laurie Schoeman, and Forbes Tompkins.
