Webinar recording: Monitoring & evaluation to enhance adaptation and reduce disaster risk


This webinar examines some of the lessons learned from monitoring and evaluation emerging from Climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction evaluation processes, and considers how we can ensure that learning can inform practice in both fields.

Climate change is exacerbating disaster risk, increasing vulnerability and eroding resilience. An increasing emphasis on adapting systems and better managing disaster risks places greater attention on proactive, rather than reactive, approaches.

This requires an understanding of the factors that contribute to adaptation processes in practice; we need to understand what works (or not), in which contexts and why. Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) can play a critical role in improving this understanding by providing the evidence and experience that can improve future practice. M&E can help to avoid costly maladaptation and learn more quickly how the most catastrophic impacts of climate change can be avoided.
