Assessing adaptation options

Once you have explored potential adaptation options, they need to be assessed to determine which of them best suit your specific context. There are many criteria you can use to assess the suitability of possible options. You may, for example, consider their effectiveness in reducing vulnerability (or enhancing resilience), or their wider impact on sustainability and their costs.  Different sets of criteria have been used to assess different adaptation options. Tools and guidance documents provided in this section will help you select assessment procedures and feasible options.
