Monitoring & evaluation of adaptation in developing countries

  1. 1. MONITORING & EVALUATION OF ADAPTATION IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES Nicolina Lamhauge, OECD Environment Directorate Task Team on Climate Change and Development Co-operation, 9-10 April 2014, Zürich, Switzerland
  2. 2. Why focus on the national level? 2
  3. 3. • To serve as a mechanism for continuous learning – What progress has been made to implement strategic adaptation policies or plans? – Is the country over time becoming less vulnerable or more resilient to the impacts of climate change? • Monitoring and evaluation as an accountability measure – Does resource allocation for adaptation reflect prioritised adaptation needs? – Are policies and plans implemented in a cost-effective manner? Objectives of national monitoring and evaluation of adaptation 3
  4. 4. Data availability and capacity • Climate & socio-economic data to detect, predict and respond to climate change • Capacity to use the data to monitor and evaluate the climate vulnerability Co-ordination • Brings together information providers and user • Establishes clear roles and responsibilities 4 2 pre-requisites for monitoring and evaluation of adaptation
  5. 5. Data availability and capacity • Climate & socio-economic data to detect, predict and respond to climate change • Capacity to use the data to monitor and evaluate the climate vulnerability Co-ordination • Brings together information providers and user • Establishes clear roles and responsibilities 5 2 pre-requisites for monitoring and evaluation of adaptation Domestic circumstances (rather than theory) tend to inform national frameworks being developed and implemented
  6. 6. Climate risk and vulnerability assessments Indicators for monitoring prioritised climate change risks and vulnerabilities Learning from adaptation approaches National audits and climate expenditure reviews Tools to monitor and evaluate adaptation 6 1 2 3 4
  7. 7. 7 Climate risk and vulnerability assessments • Guide the allocation of resources • Map the country’s climate vulnerability • A “basis” against which progress on adaptation can be reviewed • Periodic “snapshots” of changes in risks and vulnerabilities • Monitor how priority adaptation needs evolve • Inform an evaluation of the relevance of the policy approach on adaptation 1
  8. 8. 8 Indicators for prioritised adaptation needs • Monitor progress in addressing identified adaptation priorities • Over time and between locations • Identify scope of existing data sources and remaining gaps • Build broad stakeholder engagement to ensure relevance and buy-in 2
  9. 9. 9 Learning from adaptation approaches • Identify approaches that effectively deliver adaptation objectives • E.g. by learning from particularly large and/or pilot initiatives • Contribute to evidence-based policy processes • Understand the necessary pre- conditions 3
  10. 10. 10 National audits and climate expenditure reviews • Assess the alignment of resources with adaptation priorities and policy goals • Is resource allocation cost-effective and does it meet principles of good governance • Determine if institutional mechanisms are in place to manage/deliver climate finance 4
  11. 11. No Title Contribution 1 Climate risk and vulnerability assessments • Establish a “baseline” • Provide periodic “snapshots” of risk/vulnerability • Monitor how adaptation priorities change 2 Indicators for prioritised adaptation needs • Monitor adaptation priorities • Survey existing data sources and remaining gaps • Build stakeholder engagement and buy-in 3 Learning from adaptation approaches • Identify “effective” adaptation approaches • Understand the necessary pre-conditions 4 National audits and climate expenditure reviews • Assess alignment of resources with identified goals • Examine if resource allocation is cost-effective and aligned with good-practice principles 11 …to summarise
