How can standardised evaluation metrics increase climate resilience?

Source(s):  International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)

Climate shocks are hitting the Least Developed Countries with increased frequency, undermining development progress and leaving communities even more vulnerable. Adaptation initiatives seeking to combat this are hindered by a lack of clear information about what works, where and for whom. Evaluations of existing adaptation and resilience programmes should provide answers, but frequently fail to adequately define the relationships between climate shocks and development outcomes or to offer standardised metrics that allow outcomes of different initiatives in different locations to be compared. This briefing proposes that evaluation practitioners adopt a common base method that would address the current deficiencies and enable iterative learning. With this, decision makers could improve adaptation project design and select interventions that best serve individual communities’ resilience needs. The paper suggests two evaluation methods to support this shift.
