Climate change poses an unprecedented threat to the life and livelihoods of billions of people. It is essential to ensure that the measures are taken work – and work well. Monitoring and evaluation (M and E) are crucial for determining where to direct expenditures, what is effective and ineffective, why this is the case, and how to draw lessons from past mistakes to optimize impact. M and E promotes smart and successful investments in climate change adaptation. Although there are numerous M and E systems for climate change adaptation in place at the project, national, and international levels, the area is still relatively new and is expanding quickly.

The M and E for climate change adaptation Programs training provides an overview of the basic principles and methodologies for program monitoring and evaluation with emphasis on practical application for climate change adaptation researchers and practitioners.

Target Participants

This course is designed for researchers, project staff, development practitioners, managers, and decision-makers who are responsible for the project, program, or organization-level M and E of climate change adaptation programs.

What You Will Learn

By the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Understand monitoring and evaluation (M and E) for climate change adaptation programs
  • Design climate change adaptation projects using a logical framework analysis approach
  • Define different climate change adaptation indicators
  • Track performance indicators over the life of the project
  • Evaluate climate change adaptation programs against objectives and targets
  • Understand gender role in M and E in climate change adaptation programs
  • Conduct impact evaluations of climate change adaptation program
