Tracking Adaptation and Measuring Development (TAMD) in Nepal: Feasibility testing phase Q1 Report
Nepal is the most climate vulnerable country in South Asia and is leading the Least Developed Countries (LDC) in the international arena. Nepal has been concentrating its efforts to address climate change issues at a national level, developed National Climate Change Policy, prepared the NAPA in 2010 and developed the Local Adaptation Plan for Action framework, which is currently being implemented.
In this context, tracking adaptation climate change and measuring development to evaluate the effectiveness of the interventions in the country is of great interest for both the Government of Nepal and development partners. The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) has completed a scoping study in March 2013. As a follow up to the previous study, the TAMD feasibility study has been started by IIED and Integrated Development Society (IDS) – Nepal in April 2013 and will run until Mar 2014.
Realizing the importance of a TAMD tool in the Nepalese context, the Government of Nepal, Ministry of Science Technology and Environment (MoSTE) has formed a ten member Coordination Committee (CC) headed by the Joint Secretary of Climate Change Division/MoSTE. Under advice and guidance from the Committee, IDS – Nepal and IIED will finalise appropriate interventions and sites to test the feasibility of the TAMD tool for which this works will be supportive.
Based on preliminary assessment of the various interventions, the First Quarterly Report has been produced to communicate the progress of the work.
The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) is working with partners to develop and pilot a framework, called Tracking Adaptation and Measuring Development (TAMD), to track adaptation and measure its impact on development.
