Climate-Eval blogging live from Durban

My colleagues at the GEF Evaluation Office and I are here at the epicenter of climate change talks: Durban, South Africa. It is day 4 of the COP17, and Durban is starting to warm-up (literally, in some ways). We are four in our team who flew in to Durban, and now tapping away on our laptops, busy listing side events to attend, and of course preparing for our own side events on December 5 and 6.

Sara Nielsen and I will be blogging on topics related to the evaluation of climate change and development interventions. We will take inspiration from the side events we attend and climate change experts we meet. Sara is no stranger to this topic, for she is part of the team working on the evaluation of climate funds, including the Adaptation Fund, Least Developed Country Fund and the Special Climate change Fund.
