IIED is engaging with governments of five developing nations including Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nepal and Pakistan to test the framework and tools as means to evaluate a range of climate adaptation activities.

Government representatives and researchers would join IIED staff and other partners in Edinburgh on March 19-20, to review the design for the feasibility testing arrangements and next steps.

Representatives of the Scottish Government and their advisers would also attend the meeting to share their experiences of planning climate adaptation and designing a monitoring and evaluating framework.

“While most frameworks for evaluating responses to climate change assume that adaptation will neutralise harm and allow development to continue as planned, but this underestimates the real change needed to keep development on track,” says Dr Simon Anderson, head of IIED’s climate change group….
