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.

National tools for monitoring and evaluation of climate change adaptation

This chapter identifies four tools or sources of information that countries may consider when monitoring and evaluating adaptation: i) climate change risk and vulnerability assessments, ii) indicators to monitor prioritised adaptation needs; iii) lessons learned from adaptation initiatives, and iv) national audits and climate expenditure reviews. For each tool, the potential role of development co-operation providers in supporting partner countries is discussed.
