Tracking the effectiveness of climate change adaptation

GTZ. Monitoring and evaluation – tracking the effectiveness of adaptation.

M&E plays a central role in capturing whether and how interventions lead to the successful achievement of their objectives. This is of particular importance in the relatively new field of adaptation to climate change, where interventions are still in the phase of being defined and tested. Showing which ad aptation interventions lead to desired results is also important in securing funding, since financial resources are being made available specifically for adaptation measures and funders want proof of how they enable adaptation.
