Event in DC July 18th: Monitoring & Evaluating Climate Change Activities: Helping Cities Measure Up

OTHER ORGANIZER(S): United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

MAIN HOST(S): Chemonics

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 18 Jul 2019 Location: United States of America (Washington DC) Venue: Chemonics International, 1717 H St NW, 20006

Increasingly, cities are taking control of assessing local risks associated with climate variability and change and implementing adaptation strategies to mitigate impacts to their residents and to the economic activity and infrastructure on which they depend. To build resilience, cities will need to incorporate adaptation monitoring and evaluation (M&E) strategies that effectively measure and assess the effectiveness of adaptation activities and allow for timely improvements to their strategies.

At the July Adaptation Community Meeting, the USAID-funded Adaptation Thought Leadership and Assessments (ATLAS) project will present its work on best practices for monitoring and evaluating urban climate adaptation activities. The team will present the results from two recently published reports, including a literature review that summarize best practices for effective city-level adaptation M&E and a reference guide to develop a robust, practical, and resource-efficient adaptation M&E system. The guide is being field tested in the city of Cagayan de Oro, located on the island on Mindanao in the Philippines, where ATLAS is assisting the city to develop an M&E system to track adaptation actions it is taking to implement its climate change adaptation plan. Preliminary results of this work will also be discussed at the event.

The event will be held from 4:00-5:30 pm on July 18, 2019. A live webinar of the event will also be available here.
