To strengthen resilience to the impacts of climate change, OECD countries have made adaptation to climate change a national priority, as illustrated by the wide adoption of national adaptation strategies (NAS) or plans (NAPs). Understanding and measuring progress in implementing those is critical to understand how adaptation actions actually contribute to strengthening climate resilience, and whether they do so effectively. 

However, countries face difficulties in measuring progress towards NAP implementation as well as broader resilience goals. This is notably due to conceptual and methodological challenges of measuring the outcomes of adaptation actions as well as the difficulty of identifying appropriate indicators to demonstrate progress. Recent OECD Task Force on Climate Change Adaptation  events highlighted these existing challenges and the concurrent critical need for measuring progress in implementing national adaptation policies.
