SP 8.6 Monitoring, evaluating, and scaling up adaptation: evidence-based learning

Thursday 12 May, 11.00 – 12.45, Mees Auditorium

Sufficient adaptation options have been implemented to assess lessons learned in monitoring, evaluating, learning, and scaling up. Case studies from two climate funds will be explored, covering 51 least developed countries (LDCs) and a wide range of Non-Annex 1 countries. Technical papers commissioned by UNEP’s Global Programme of Research on Climate Change Vulnerability, Impacts and Adaptation (PROVIA) and the Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP) of the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) will be discussed to demonstrate progress in adaptation interventions. These presentations will be followed by a roundtable discussion about how lessons learned might shape future adaptation monitoring, evaluation, learning, and scaling up.
