Actions and Detail Panel
Monitoring and evaluation to enhance adaptation and reduce disaster risk
Mon 30 January 2017, 10:00 – 11:00 GMT
PLACARD M&E webinar
Join us for a one-hour webinar to examine some of the lessons learned from M&E emerging from CCA and DRR evaluation processes, and consider how we can ensure that learning can inform practice in both fields.
Three short presentations from DG ECHO, the BRACED programme and the European Topic Centre on Climate Change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation will be followed by a discussion to consider:
- How can we make better use of M&E outputs in CCA and DRR?
- How can we transfer M&E lessons between CCA and DRR communities?
Climate change is exacerbating disaster risk, increasing vulnerability and eroding resilience. An increasing emphasis on adapting systems and better managing disaster risks places greater attention on proactive, rather than reactive, approaches.
This requires an understanding of the factors that contribute to adaptation processes in practice; we need to understand what works (or not), in which contexts and why. Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) can play a critical role in improving this understanding by providing the evidence and experience that can improve future practice. M&E can help to avoid costly maladaptation and learn more quickly how the most catastrophic impacts of climate change can be avoided.
We hope you can join us!
