Good practice study on principles for indicator development, selection, and use in climate change adaptation monitoring and evaluation
This study identifies and addresses key challenges concerning monitoring and evaluation (M&E) for climate change adaptation (CCA).
It documents good practices and good practice principles on the development, selection, and use of indicators used in the M&E of adaptation interventions. The study also looks at the steps and contexts M&E personnel should consider when formulating, selecting, adjusting, and/or using indicators. The study also identifies common themes in the literature and gaps in data – including the role of learning in an adaptation M&E system and the identification of linkages (or lack thereof) between indicators and policy formulation and decisions.
It argues that CA M&E has a central role to play in shaping the future of adaptation planning, activities, and policy and that the lessons can help orient the strategic direction of adaptation funding/development assistance, and can be integrated into national action plans and shared directly with beneficiaries.
