30-min crash course: tracking and assessing international adaptation finance using the MDB three-step approach

CARE and Partners for Resilience are developing a methodology to track international adaptation finance to the local level, and assess projects to verify whether they are correctly marked as ‘adaptation’. Together with civil society organizations, we will pilot this methodology in Ghana, Uganda, Ethiopia, Nepal, Vietnam and Philippines. The aim is to develop a methodology for civil society worldwide to assess adaptation funding in a relatively standard way, and use this data in their interaction with government and international advocacy.

This will be an interactive session in which we will briefly go into the background of this methodology including the Rio Markers and the Multilateral Development Banks (MDB) three-step approach, and then share the short version of the assessment form. We will take a few minutes to apply this form to a sample project, and then reflect on the use of such a tool, collecting your valuable insights and suggestions.
