The Project 'An experimental approach to capacity and toolkit development for monitoring and evaluation within climate change adaptation initiatives' was implemented by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), the Sahara and Sahel Observatory (OSS), the AGRHYMET Regional Center, and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The Project was funded through the Climate Change Adaptation in Africa Programme of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada and the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and had the following four specific objectives:
- To harmonise approaches to Monitoring and Evaluation of climate change adaptation
- To test methodologies through case studies integrating different administrative levels
- To develop, test and improve training materials on selected methodologies
- To develop a strategy for outreach
The project was able to deliver the required outputs and to effect some changes within the project implementing partners. Furthermore, it was able to facilitate an increased understanding on M&E practices, methods and tools in the context of climate change adaptation and to instigate change in stakeholder organizations.
