Assessment of Adaptation Strategies Indicators

The first step of an assessment of an adaptation strategy is to select criteria or indicators that would allow for quantifying the overall efficiency of an adaptation strategy. The set of indicators proposed for the Syr Darya Basin is given in Table 5.9. The indicators are subdivided into three categories: Environmental, Food and Industrial, each one representing the benefits for a corresponding water resources user. For each indicator the following details are provided: (i) how it is measured, + + + /---; (ii)

what factor (climate change (CC), climate variability (CV), socio-economic change (SE)) is affecting it most; (iii) how it is estimated, e.g. based on a model output or through an expert judgement; and (iv) additional comments.
