TAMD Scoping Phase Summary Report
The scale of climate change adaptation investments demands robust assessments of the expected and actual returns. It is important to know how effectively adaptation keeps development on track and also how equitably adaptation costs and benefits are distributed. It is anticipated that the Tracking Adaptation and Measuring Development (TAMD) approach will enable governments and climate finance providers to better assess the developmental impacts of their climate change adaptation interventions. Five case countries have initially been considered, and scoping studies were carried out to see if there were suitable circumstances for developing and testing a TAMD framework. The scoping work indicates that the TAMD approach is relevant for all five countries, and that there are very good opportunities to develop evaluative frameworks through the TAMD approach. On the basis of the scoping studies, the TAMD initiative appears ready to move into the next phase of appraisal and design.
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.
