Adaptation M&E / MEL

Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) for Adaptation

This course has been integrated into the 5-day ‘Adapting to Climate Change’ course, but may still be offered on request, given a sufficient number of participants.

Cost: £595 (discounts for early registration & if attending 3-day mainstreaming course)

Duration: 2 days

Venue: Norwich, UK, at the Garama office or the University of East Anglia Campus

Frequency:  On request (replaced by ‘Adapting to Climate Change’ course)

This course is aimed at anyone who needs to assess the extent to which interventions (either individually or collectively) are delivering effective adaptation outcomes and/or helping to make people and systems more resilient to shocks and stresses associated with climate variability and change. It addresses issues commonly framed in terms of monitoring and evaluation (M&E), or monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL). The course outlines the challenges of adaptation M&E/MEL, reviews existing approaches, and presents frameworks for assessing the effectiveness of adaptation that go beyond the usual focus on outputs. It includes discussion of the TAMD framework and other approaches and frameworks, and recent developments in the measurement of resilience. It addresses the need for ‘counterfactuals’ and the challenge of tracking the success of development and adaptation interventions in the face of evolving climate risk contexts, that may make the achievement of development goals more difficult.
