According to Article 19, Paragraph 4 of the "Climate Change Response Act," central industry competent authorities responsible for areas vulnerable to the impacts of climate change are to formulate adaptation action program performance reports yearly and submit them to the central competent authority, which shall report to the Executive Yuan for approval. Once approved, the reports shall be published.

The Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) is the central industry competent authority for water resources, an area vulnerable to climate change impacts. Supporting government agencies of the water resource adaptation action program shall submit priority action plan result or progress reports yearly to the MOEA, which shall consolidate them into an area performance report and submit it to the competent authority (MOENV) by the designated deadline. The MOENV shall consolidate the water resource report with other areas' reports to produce the yearly performance report for national adaptation plans, which shall be reviewed, published, and submitted to the National Council for Sustainable Development for evaluation.

Supporting government agencies of the water resource adaptation action program shall continuously track the status of individual adaptation action plans. Once a plan is completed, it shall be terminated and agencies shall completely review the adaptation strategies' emphasis and direction, add, remove, or revise proposed priority action plans, and regularly submit the aforementioned reports. The central competent authority (MOENV) shall convene an inter-ministerial negotiation every six months to discuss key issues, propose effective measures, and implement adaptation strategy monitoring and evaluation mechanisms to ensure adjustments are being made on a rolling basis.
