Institutionalising adaptation monitoring and evaluation frameworks: Kenya
Climate change adaptation has become a policy priority in most developing countries, despite limited resourcing. With climate finance soon becoming available, countries need to demonstrate that they can absorb, track and assess adaptation investments through effective monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems. Climate change adaptation M&E is relatively new and the context specificity of adaptation means there is no standardised system. Countries therefore need to design and institutionalise adaptation M&E systems that are customised to their needs at all levels. Kenya began this process with the development of the National Performance Benefits and Measurement Framework. The tracking adaptation and measuring development (TAMD) framework currently being rolled out across Kenya will help create county adaptation M&E systems that will contribute to national assessment and aggregation.
