Figure 2.16: -

Graphical representation of baseline self-assessments made using FCM’s Climate Adaptation Maturity Scale provided by municipalities that received FCM-support towards local adaptation projects. The five-point scale ranges from 1.0 (concept level) to 5.0 (continuous improvement level), and includes three competency areas: 1) policy, 2) human resources and governance, and 3) technical and risk management. This graph shows the average self-assessment values provided by small municipalities (e.g. less than 10,000), medium-size municipalities (e.g. 10,000-100,000) and large municipalities (e.g. more than 100,000) at the start of their adaptation projects.
