Revitalising Evidence-based Policy for the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030: Lessons from Existing International Science Partnerships

Author: Elizabeth Carabine 

Publication date: April 23, 2015

The convergence of agreements on disaster risk reduction (DRR), development finance, sustainable development and climate change in 2015 presents a unique opportunity for coherence across these inter-related policy areas.

Evaluation Review 1: Design, monitoring, and evaluation in a changing climate: lessons learned from agriculture and food security programme evaluations in Asia

Authors: Bours, D. et alii.
Publication date: 2014

This paper is the first in a series of SEA Change / UKCIP Evaluation Reviews, which are intended as short briefs highlighting and distilling findings from published evaluations of climate change related programme interventions. This first paper is aimed at sharing some design, monitoring, and evaluation ‘lessons learned’ that are pertinent to climate change adaptation, which have been drawn from a small selection of agriculture/food security programmes across Asia.

Guidance Note 3: Theory of Change approach to climate change adaptation programming

Authors: Bours, D., McGinn, C. & Pringle, P. (for SEA Change CoP, UKCIP)
Publication date: 2014

This Guidance Note describes the Theory of Change approach and explains why it is a good fit for climate change adaptation programming. It highlights its differences with the more familiar logic model / logical framework (‘logframe’) approaches – and also shows how they can be used together.

Monitoring & evaluation for climate change adaptation: A synthesis of tools, frameworks and approaches

Authors: Bours, D., McGinn, C. & Pringle, P. (for SEA Change CoP, UKCIP)
Publication date: 2013

This report represents a synthesis and summary of frameworks for the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of climate change adaptation (CCA) interventions, with a specific focus on international development projects and programs.

The objective of this report is to:

Climate resilience and food security: A framework for planning and monitoring

Authors: Tyler, S. et alii.
Publication date: 2013

This IISD working paper presents approaches to understanding and monitoring food system resilience to climate change. It describes an emerging conceptual tool designed to support analysis of community-level food security and resilience of food systems.

Guidance Note 1: Twelve reasons why climate change adaptation M&E is challenging

Authors: Bours, D., McGinn, C. & Pringle, P.
Publication date: 2013

The complexities inherent in climate change adaptation (CCA) programming call for a nuanced approach to M&E research. This is not, however, always being realised in practice. CCA poses a range of thorny challenges for evaluators.

Guidance Note 2: Selecting indicators for climate change adaptation programming

Authors: Bours, D., McGinn, C. & Pringle, P. (for SEA Change CoP, UKCIP)
Publication date: 2014

Contributing to the debate on how to deal with the complexities of climate change adaptation (CCA) as evaluators, this second guidance note poses the question: how does one go about choosing appropriate indicators?

Assessment of sustainability elements/key risk factors practical guide

Author: Norad
Publication date: 2010

The Practical Guide is a supportive document for carrying out screening of relevant sustainability elements/key risk factors. The Guide is designed to be of practical use when identifying, assessing and documenting the effects and risks of a programme, among these the cross cutting issues referred to in the various grant scheme rules.
