SEARCH, Increasing Local Community Resilience in the MENA Region

SEARCH is a three year regional project working in five countries (Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Palestine and Lebanon), funded by the European Union, to develop and pilot a resilience framework for local action planning capacities and methodologies to increase climate change resilience through joint learning, planning and testing by stakeholders through demonstration sites.

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.

Monitoring & evaluation for climate change adaptation and resilience: A synthesis of tools, frameworks and approaches - 2nd edition

Authors: Bours, D., McGinn, C. & Pringle, P.
Publication date: 2014

The second edition of this report comes at a critical moment. Climate change threatens to reverse progress towards sustainable development and threatens lives and livelihoods around the globe. Climate change adaptation interventions need to be embedded in an analysis of a threat unprecedented in human history, but deliver change at the household level as well.

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:

Vulnerability assessments: Experiences of GIZ with vulnerability assessments at the local level

Author: Bünner, N. (for GIZ)
Publication date: 2013

The goal of this factsheet with additional descriptions of Vulnerability Assessment (VA) applications is to provide an overview of experiences with VAs gained in GIZ projects and make these experiences available to others.

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?

The monitoring and evaluation of climate change adaptation in Nepal:a review of national systems

Authors: Fisher, S. & Slaney, M.
Publication date: 2013

National monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems in Nepal have evolved rapidly over the past decade. The National Planning Commission has developed new guidelines and approaches to move the Government towards results-based management and the use of sectoral and national indicators.
