PR 8.8 Monitoring, reporting and evaluating adaptation: current practice and looking ahead

Wednesday 11 May, 08.45 – 10.30, Beurs Lounge

The session will present monitoring, reporting and evaluation (MRE) systems developed and implemented in both developing and developed countries, including case study examples from Germany, the Lower Mekong Basin, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Discussions will explore the lessons derived from these case studies and their relevance for national level MRE systems. Lessons learned from such experiences are instrumental in helping other countries to develop adaptation MRE systems. The session will consist of two overview presentations and four case study presentations, followed by an interactive panel discussion with national representatives, MRE experts and the audience.
