What does successful adaptation look like, and what do we want to measure in the context of adaptation, national development and SDGs?


IIED is a part of GIZ funded consortium that provides Support for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement (SPA). With its focus on adaptation, M&E and transparency, the programme seeks to improve and share understanding on which monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) approaches, tools and indicators have had greatest utility to national decision makers, and how learning from these approaches could enable national decision making and adaptation reporting in the context of Paris Agreement.

This webinar is the first of the series, setting out what adaptation success means and what we want to measure in the context of adaptation and national development.

Outline of the Programme

  • IIED Senior researcher Neha Rai will introduce the webinar
  • Timo Leiter, Advisor Climate Adaptation and Climate Finance, GIZ, will set the scene by introducing the relevance of the topic and why it is important to invest in MEL for adaptation
  • Simon Anderson, Senior fellow, IIED, will discuss what we want to measure in the context of adaptation, national development and SDGs: focussing on different pillars of adaptation MEL
    • climate risk management (institutions, governance and enabling environments)
    • vulnerability
    • resilience and adaptive capacity (adaptation performance)
    • development outcomes: human and environmental wellbeing (development performance)
