Toolkit | August 30, 2019

This reference guide is for city managers and other city staff who are creating a citywide climate adaptation monitoring and evaluation (M&E) program.

Climate adaptation initiatives are increasing at both the international and national level. At the local level, cities are leading the way, committing to ambitious climate adaptation goals through global city networks or groups. Adaptation monitoring and evaluation (and importantly, learning) of activities can help cities move beyond city- and project-level progress reporting. This reference guide is for city managers and other city staff who are creating a citywide climate adaptation monitoring and evaluation (M&E) program. The guide details essential components of an adaptation M&E framework and provides a structure for cities to plan and implement an adaptation M&E framework.
