The paper analyses the challenges of evaluating climate change adaptation measures and describes a general assessment framework that takes these challenges into consideration. The framework is integrated into an innovative decision making tool, CLIMate ACTions Prioritization (CLIMACT Prio), for the screening, prioritization and evaluation of climate change adaptation measures. CLIMACT Prio applies Multi Criteria Analysis to assist urban decision makers in identifying a wide range of decision criteria and setting priorities among different objectives. The paper concludes with the description of the preliminary application of the CLIMACT Prio to the case of Dhaka, Bangladesh, where the tool was used to prioritise and select alternative adaptation measures aimed at protecting vulnerable areas from flooding
