Studies

Climate-Eval strength lies in our state-of-the-art studies on evaluating climate change and natural resources management. As the premier CoP in this area, we strive to provide innovative tools, guidelines and framework to evaluate climate change and natural resources management. We have so far produced three cutting edge studies – which you can visit below. We are also planning to produce four more on the nexus between climate adaptation and natural resources management.

Good Practice Study on Principles for Indicator Development, Selection, and Use in Climate Change Adaptation Monitoring and Evaluation

The Independent Evaluation Office of the Global Environment Facility (GEF IEO) has undertaken - on behalf of Climate-Eval - a Good Practice Study on Indicator Development, Selection and Use Principles for Climate Change Adaptation M&E. This study identifies and addresses key challenges concerning M&E for CCA by documenting good practices and related principles on the development, selection, and use of indicators used in the M&E of adaptation interventions.

Scoping Study on Evaluation of Natural Resource Management Interventions linked to Climate Change

The Scoping Study on Evaluation on Natural Resource Management (NRM) Interventions linked to climate change was carried out by the Independent Evaluation Office of the Global Environment Facility (GEF IEO) on behalf of the Climate-Eval community of practice.

Guidelines to Climate Mitigation Evaluations

By: Dr. Christine Wörlen
These guidelines for climate mitigation evaluations are intended to clarify some of the persistent evaluation and measurement issues associated with climate mitigation interventions. This paper is a contribution towards solving some of the persistent methodological questions by formulating guidelines facing climate change mitigation evaluation. It has a focus on a theory-based approach for evaluating mitigation interventions and deals with a number of conceptual and practical challenges.

Meta-Evaluation of Climate Mitigation Evaluations

By: Dr. Christine Wörlen
This study is a systematization of the barrier removal framework, and an attempt to frame it as a general program theory of climate mitigation interventions. The author applied the framework to two case studies, namely energy efficiency in Thailand and the heat utilities in Poland to capture the issues in the case studies' sector transformation. The framework tries to explain why some projects are unsuccessful in effecting behavior change.

Framework for Monitoring and Evaluation of Adaptation to Climate Change

By: Harris E. Sanahuja
This framework paper is about the application of sound monitoring and evaluation methodologies and processes to initiatives of adaptation to climate change. It is intended as a practical guide to allow for more fluid progress towards capacity development for monitoring and evaluating adaptation to climate change interventions.
