Indicators of technical readiness for climate adaptation innovations.
||A metric to evaluate the intended functionality of the innovation when used to reduce climate-related risks.
||hazard; risk reduction capacity;
||A metric that encompasses the temporary- or permanent-nature of the operation of the innovation.
||lifetime; durability; operation and maintenance requirements;
||A metric that describes the likelihood that an innovation fulfills its intended functionality during its intended lifetime.
||Inherent reliability; structural failure; implementation and technical failure modes
||A metric that encompasses the capacity of the innovation to be sold/deployed in other locations than originally envisioned i.e., the size of the European market for the innovation.
||hazard; risk reduction capacity; reliability; material components; modularity (and cost)
Indicators of enviormental readiness for climate adaptation innovations.
