Outcomes: Assessing outcomes is a common objective of MRE in most policy areas, but can be difficult in the context of climate change. Outcomes refer to results that contribute to positive improvement(s) that a policy or programme is accountable for achieving. For example, an outcome could be a reduction in the number of homes affected by flood events which, in turn, could be considered an aspect of reduced vulnerability. Long timescales, uncertainty and establishing the counterfactual (including measuring avoided adverse outcomes) are all methodological challenges for MRE in the context of adaptation. Nevertheless, MRE systems are expected to at least determine progress made towards outcomes such as increased resilience and reduced vulnerability to climate change.
