TAMD Climate Change Indicator - Methodological Note. Indicator 4: Institutional Knowledge/Capacity
INDICATOR 4. INSTITUTIONAL KNOWLEDGE/CAPACITY
Level of knowledge and training of key personnel in climate change issues and mainstreaming processes
This indicator is designed to capture the extent to which development and adaptation planning is informed by knowledge of climate change in general and specific knowledge relating to methodologies for integrating or mainstreaming climate change into planning, and the extent to which planning staff are trained in relevant areas.
The indicator can be used to assess the performance of an individual capacity building programme, through evaluation of the target system (e.g. ministry, sector, institution) at the beginning, during, and at the end of the programme.
The indicator may also be used to assess institutional knowledge in systems targeted by multiple programmes.
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.
