Action for Climate Empowerment: Guidelines for accelerating solutions through education, training and public awareness

The Guidelines are intended to facilitate the work of National Focal Points (NFPs) to implement ACE activities in their countries. This publication can also be useful to other policy-makers and members of civil society organizations (CSOs) seeking the means to address climate change. The guidelines provide a flexible, phased approach to the strategic and systematic implementation of ACE activities at the national level, driven by each country’s circumstances.

Monitoring and evaluating climate adaptation: a review of GCCA experience

Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of adaptation to climate change is essential but is a young discipline, as yet with no universally agreed standards or practices for measuring how well an intervention reduces peoples’ climate vulnerability. However, several multi-country programmes are focusing on supporting adaptation activities in developing countries, and these programmes provide a good opportunity to see how M&E is taking place and to share the lessons. This briefing reports recommendations from a review of the European Union’s Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) initiative. The review examined how M&E is being undertaken within the GCCA programmes, and how M&E may contribute to national or regional evaluations of climate change adaptation.

Monitoring and evaluation of climate change adaptation in Nepal: a review of national systems

The research approach combines an extensive review of secondary literature on the national M&E system and project and programme documents on climate change adaptation with a series of interviews and consultations with key stakeholders undertaken in Kathmandu between November 2012 and February 2013. The research has focused on a set of programmes that explicitly consider climate change adaptation as their main aim, rather than the range of climate relevant programmes under the main development programme. For this reason, the primary empirical focus is on the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment, although other sectors and the national system are also included for comparison and context.

Monitoring & evaluation for climate change adaptation: A synthesis of tools, frameworks and approaches

This report represents a synthesis and summary of frameworks for the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of climate change adaptation (CCA) interventions, with a specific focus on international development projects and programs. The objective of this report is to: Provide an easy-to-read synthesis of current adaptation M&E resources, frameworks, and approaches so that practitioners are able to more easily identify the information and tools that are most relevant to their needs. Provide a short analysis of the “state of play” of adaptation M&E guidance, identifying key themes and reflecting upon gaps and future priorities.

Ecosystem-based approaches to building resilience in urban areas: towards a framework for decision-making criteria

This paper focuses on ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) in urban areas, exploring the vast potential benefits that might be gained from using the multiple functions performed by large, often contiguous and interconnected, natural ecosystems such as soils, wetlands, catchments and coral reefs. With a growing number of implementation projects and key challenges in performance-management, this paper aims to open the debate on what constitutes effective urban EbA

Ecosystem-based adaptation in cities: An analysis of European urban climate adaptation plans

The paper concludes by offering recommendations to improve future practice, in terms of enhancing the baseline information to improve the proposal and design of EbA measures, improving the treatment of co-benefits associated to EbA measures, and strengthening coordination with other planning tools. Possible future development of this works includes the integration of the proposed EbA classification, and the analysis of a larger sample of territorial plans.

Monitoring and Evaluating Adaptation at Aggregated Levels: A Comparative Analysis of Ten Systems

The purpose of this paper is to provide an introduction to the different approaches and experiences in designing and implementing (piloting) M&E systems for adaptation at these aggregated levels. This will be done through an in-depth comparison of ten aggregated M&E systems.

Adaptation in human settlements: key findings and way forward

Adapting to climate change in human settlements is critical to ensuring that human development is not jeopardized and that the world’s growing population has the opportunity to thrive where they live. This report shares key findings, good practices and lessons learned on adaptation in human settlements and is based on submissions from Parties and organizations and expert knowledge of the latest experience and research. It provides evidence of, and guidance and tools for, the coordinated local engagement of national and subnational governments in building climate resilience in collaboration with communities, civil society organizations, research centres and the private sector

Adaptation metrics: Perspectives on measuring, aggregating and comparing adaptation results

Addressing adaptation and resilience is increasingly important in the fight against climate change. Large amounts of resources, both public and private, are being allocated in order to improve adaptive capacity, strengthen resilience and reduce vulnerability. There is greater recognition of the need to prioritize and direct the limited adaptation funds to the most vulnerable countries and population groups. The main interest of the publication is how to measure and monitor progress in adaptation, both in terms of results and processes.

Developing national adaptation monitoring and evaluation systems: A guidebook

M&E of adaptation aims to track progress in implement- ing adaptation interventions, and/or how these interventions are reducing vulnerability, improving adaptive capacity, and supporting the overall well-being of populations affected by the impacts of climate change. The Guidebook builds on a comparative review of national M&E of adaptation in ten countries, jointly produced by GIZ and IISD in 2014 and draws on examples, recommendations, and lessons that emerged from this study.
