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.
