Drawing up a National Climate Change Adaptation Policy: Feedback from five european case studies

Adapting to climate change raises a large number of research, assessment, governance and implementation issues, often differing from those raised by mitigation policies.

National climate change adaptation: emerging practices in monitoring and evaluation

Developing countries are increasingly moving towards more strategic national policies and plans, the effectiveness of which will depend upon proper assessment of a given country’s vulnerability to climate change. This report draws upon emerging monitoring and evaluation practices across developed and developing countries to identify four tools that countries can draw upon in their own assessment frameworks: 1) climate change risk and vulnerability assessments, 2) indicators to monitor progress on adaptation priorities, 3) project and programme evaluations to identify effective adaptation approaches, and 4) national audits and climate expenditure reviews
