Assessing adaptation results: aligning national M&E systems and global results frameworks
The Paris Agreement provides a foundation for the most robust climate change transparency system to date, requesting countries to provide information on their progress to adaptation targets. Linking up country-led and global M&E systems can be mutually beneficial. It would help streamline workflows and reduce reporting burdens, minimise resource wastage and win ‘buy-in’ from the people responsible for making sure these systems work. This paper looks at the M&E approaches of major climate funds and national frameworks to draw lessons for aligning country systems and fund-level results frameworks in order to assess adaptation success more effectively.
