Guidance for M&E of community-based adaptation

A new book chapter outlines M&E of community-based adaptation. The chapter presents results from the 9th Community-based Adaptation conference (CBA9) in Nairobi. Entitled Key considerations for monitoring and evaluation of community-based Adaptationit:

  • Introduces four considerations for the development of an adaptation M&E system (purpose, content, target audience, capacities & resources)
  • Discusses principles, frameworks and trade-offs for M&E of CBA
  • Recommends a theory of change approach such as GIZ’s “Adaptation made to measure
  • Outlines how M&E of CBA can be linked to national Adaptation M&E systems

The chapter offers an introduction for practitioners working at the community level who are interested in advancing their knowledge about Monitoring & Evaluation. It also serves as background reading for GIZ’s adaptation M&E training course. Authored by Timo Leiter from the project “Effective Adaptation Finance (M&E Adapt)” funded by BMZ, the chapter is part of the book “Enhancing adaptation to climate change in developing countries” published by the African Centre for Technology Studies Press.

Evidence of EbA measures: Webinars in collaboration with UNEP-REGATTA/Practical Solutions

Why is it relevant to have evidence on the effectiveness of EbA, how to generate this evidence and communicate it to the target groups?

We are delighted to invite you to our webinar series on “Evidence of the effectiveness of Ecosystem-based Adaptation” in collaboration with the EbA Community of Practice of UNEP-REGATTA, managed by Practical Solutions.

The invitation for the online discussion and first webinar on 2nd March 9.00 – 11.00 am (Lima, Bogotá, Quito) is now available here.

Discussion series on EbA-relevant tools and methods: Outcome paper and further sources now online

We need effective and field-proven tools and methods to support adaptive management and decision-making and consider EbA measures within an overall adaptation strategy. From September-November 2016, the online discussion series of the International EbA Community of Practice centered around three key questions:

1) Which EbA-relevant tools exist already and have been used successfully at different stages of the mainstreaming cycle?

2) How to adopt existing tools to an EbA context?

3) How to make these tools available to a broader audience?

In addition to the webinar recordings, an outcome paper on EbA-relevant tools and methods and a list of further sources is now available here.
