  • A successful adaptation is one that achieves its goals under a changing climate.
  • This will only become apparent in the longer term, usually after the project has been completed and with the continued capacity to sustain the positive results of those actions.
  • Effective M&E for adaptation can track the interim results as a basis for understanding the degree to which climate pressures have affected the achievement and sustainability of development goals over time.
  • Growing climatic variability and the many uncertainties associated with climate change mean that there are limits to planning.
  • The assumptions, conditions and expectations at the start of an intervention are now even more unlikely to remain true for its duration or beyond.
  • M&E can provide feedback loops to help us to be flexible, respond rapidly and adjust appropriately to varied climatic changes, applying principles of adaptive management. All this is critical for sustainable development – and even more so now that the climate is changing.
