Guidance on Integrating Justice Issues into the Monitoring and Evaluation of Ecosystem-based Adaptation Interventions

This tool provides practitioners and project planners with concrete entry points for anchoring justice in M&E systems of EbA projects. It gives guidance on project objective, results framework and project indicators and explains key steps how to best involve stakeholders in setting up the M&E system.

To that end, the main objective of the guidance is to demonstrate two key steps:

  • Integrating aspects of justice into the objectives envisaged and respective results framework of a project as well as into the selection of suitable indicators;
  • Designing the M&E process with project participants during conceptualisation and implementation of the M&E system in such a way as to foster justice.

To keep in view the importance of an enabling environment, this guidance document also highlights the necessary role of implementing organisations and institutions. Anchoring climate justice at a strategic level is a necessary prerequisite for effective integration into the M&E of development interventions, thus paving the way for justice-based project portfolios.

This guidance document is not intended to serve as a detailed manual. Rather, it describes key considerations and steps in a condensed form, and points to methodologies that involve more specific instructions.
