TAMD Climate Change Indicator - Methodological Note. Indicator 2: Institutional Coordination for Integration
Tracking Adaptation and Measuring Development (TAMD) Indicator: Extent and quality of coordination of climate risk management across relevant institutions
This indicator is designed to capture the extent to which climate risk management (CRM) is coordinated across relevant institutions such as ministries, government agencies, or other bodies with a responsibility to integrate CRM into their activities. It is relevant to interventions intended to build capacity to address climate change through the development of climate plans, strategies and mainstreaming mechanisms/ systems.
The indicator can be used to assess the performance of an individual capacity building intervention that targets multiple institutions, through evaluation of the target systems (e.g. ministries, agencies, sectors, other institutions) at the beginning, during, and at the end of the programme. Such an intervention would have a focus on improving communication, cooperation and coordination across these bodies.
The indicator may also be used to assess the status of climate change integration in (e.g. national) systems targeted by multiple programmes, or simply in systems whose progress in this area is to be monitored (e.g. for self-assessment by governments pursuing their own climate change integration initiatives without external support).
