The workshop engaged leaders on M&E of adaptation with expertise in implementing adaptation at different
levels, including the national, programme and project level, coming from government, regional organizations,
development banks, bilateral technical cooperation agencies, research institutions and civil
society. Participants were invited in their expert capacity.
The workshop addressed three broad policy questions:
- Given the diverse set of indicators that currently exist to measure and evaluate adaptation, how can
communities, countries and development and adaptation agencies build on a common understanding of success
in achieving climate resilience?
- How can a framework be created that links individual assessments with national level assessments to
broaden the focus from the means of achieving outcomes (individual interventions) to the desired end result
(countries’ becoming less vulnerable and having more adaptive capacity)?
- How can results from M&E be reported and disseminated so as to ensure that they are fed back into
the respective adaptation process but also to allow for lessons learned and good practices identified to be
shared with the wider community of adaptation planners and practitioners?
