Monitoring and Assessment Plan (MAP)

The Monitoring and Assessment Plan (MAP) is the primary tool by which the REstoration COordination and VERification (RECOVER) program will assess the performance of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP).

The scientific and technical information generated from the MAP implementation will be organized to provide a process for RECOVER to evaluate CERP performance and system responses and to produce assessment reports describing and interpreting the responses. The Adaptive Assessment Team of RECOVER has the lead responsibility for developing, implementing, and updating the MAP.

The overarching goal for implementation of the MAP is to have a single, integrated, system-wide monitoring and assessment plan that will be used and supported by all participating agencies and tribal governments as the means of tracking and measuring the performance of the CERP.
