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

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.
