National Climate Change Adaptation

Emerging Practices in Monitoring and Evaluation

image of National Climate Change Adaptation

Developing countries are increasingly moving towards more strategic national policies and plans, the effectiveness of which will depend upon proper assessment of a given country’s vulnerability to climate change. This report draws upon emerging monitoring and evaluation practices across developed and developing countries to identify four tools that countries can draw upon in their own assessment frameworks: 1) climate change risk and vulnerability assessments, 2) indicators to monitor progress on adaptation priorities, 3) project and programme evaluations to identify effective adaptation approaches, and 4) national audits and climate expenditure reviews.

The appropriate mix of tools to monitor and evaluate national climate-change adaptation will to a large extent be determined by data availability, monitoring and evaluation capacity, and the ability to bring together the producers and the users of relevant climate information. The report also examines how development co-operation providers can support partner countries in their efforts to monitor and evaluate adaptation.

Indicators used to evaluate adaptation in the United Kingdom

The UK Climate Change Act was introduced in 2008. A legally-binding framework on climate change adaption and mitigation, the Act included a call for the implementation of a National Adaptation Programme (NAP) addressing prioritised climate change risks to England. Further, the Act placed a statutory duty on the Adaptation Sub-Committee, of the Committee on Climate Change, to prepare an independent assessment of progress made in implementing the NAP.
