1 An initiative of the ACP Group of States funded by the European Union Global Climate Change Alliance: Intra-ACP Programme Training Module Mainstreaming Climate Change Module 7 Mainstreaming climate change in monitoring systems Ms Isabelle Mamaty Senior Expert Climate Support Facility

2 Mainstreaming climate change in monitoring systems  Learning objectives: o To understand how to integrate climate relevant indicators in the existing national or sector monitoring system o To understand why the monitoring system should integrate climate relevant indicators as part of the mainstreaming process  Expected outcomes: o Increased knowledge on mainstreaming in the country monitoring system o Increased knowledge on climate relevant indicators 2

3 Performance measurement and monitoring: Key concepts 3

4 Objectives and related indicators/milestones Hierarchy of objectivesProgress measurement Overall objective(s) Specific objective(s) Intermediate results Inputs Impact indicators Outcome indicators Output indicators Milestones Input indicators Milestones OutcomesOutcomes ProcessProcess Adapted from: EC (2004), OECD (2002) 4

5 SMART indicators and targets Indicators and targets should be: Specific to the related objectives Measurable Available at a reasonable cost Relevant to the information needs of decision makers Time-bound Source: EC (2004) 5

6 Mainstreaming climate change in monitoring systems 6

7 What should be monitored, and why? Aspect to monitorRationale for monitoring Climate variability and change, impacts and vulnerabilities Make decisions as well informed as possible Support adaptive management Policy and institutional change Promote the institutionalisation of climate change mainstreaming Enhance the transparency and accountability of the mainstreaming process Policy/Strategy implementation and outcomes Strengthen commitment to the objectives set in policies and strategies Stimulate the achievement of tangible outcomes 7

8 Climate change in the national development monitoring system  Climate monitoring should be integrated into wider national and specific development monitoring systems => Strengthen and adapt existing monitoring systems (incl. statistical systems) to integrate climate change o Build on existing institutions and sources of information... o... but adapt statistical systems and data sources 8

9 Levels at which to measure climate-related performance  Indicators and milestones related to climate change and the associated response can be included in the PAFs (*) of climate change strategies and actions plans, but also those of: o national and sectoral development strategies and programmes o sub-national (e.g. regional, local) development plans o individual projects (logical framework) (*) Performance assessment frameworks Ultimate objective of mainstreaming! 9

10 Monitoring climate change Mainstreaming Meteorology, climate variability Climate change Data collection, management and dissemination Strengthening of meteorological information & systems New patterns Emerging trends Projections, scenarios Tools for assessing impacts, vulnerabilities & risks Is the mainstreaming process based on reliable information? 10

11 Monitoring policy and institutional change Mainstreaming Policy change Institutional change Integration of adaptation/mitigation considerations in national & sector policies/strategies Development of adaptation- & mitigation-oriented policies & plans (e.g. DRR, REDD strategy) Political leadership Institutional commitment Coordination & participatory mechanisms Procedures Systems Tools Capacity building programmes Is mainstreaming getting institutionalised at all levels?

12 Monitoring policy implementation and outcomes Mainstreaming Implementation (inputs, outputs) Outcomes, impacts Increased allocation of resources (Inclusion of) adaptation/mitigation (measures in) programmes/projects Implementation & enforcement of adaptation/mitigation measures & regulations Increased resilience of vulnerable groups (women, children, farmers, coastal communities,...) Increased resilience of key sectors Green growth, green jobs Climate-resilient, low- emission development Does the mainstreaming process produce results and impacts? 12

13 Performance assessment frameworks and budget support 13

14 Role of PAFs in relation to budget support  Progress measured against the PAF’s criteria and targets provides opportunities for policy dialogue in the context of budget support o Increasingly, the PAF associated with development and poverty reduction strategies is likely to include indicators and targets associated with climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, energy efficiency, etc.  In the case of EC budget support, performance against a chosen sub-set of criteria and targets also determines the final amount of disbursements 14

15 Turning words into action 15

16 Discussion  Questions and answers  Monitoring climate change  Monitoring policy and institutional change  Monitoring policy implementation and outcomes What are the opportunities for monitoring climate change in your sector or at your level and what are the institutional and capacity needs in your organisation to do so?

17 Presentation of case studies  Presentation of key indicators for monitoring climate change and climate change mainstreaming (in the context of a specific national or sector programme if available) 17

18 Learning process exercise : Working group  Exercise: Identification of climate relevant indicators of a given national or sector programme 18

19 Recap – Key messages  Climate monitoring, as well as the monitoring of responses to climate change, should be integrated into existing development monitoring systems o This is a key aspect of the mainstreaming process  Multiple aspects can be subject to monitoring o Climate variability and change and their impacts o Changes in policies and institutions o The implementation and outcomes of adaptation and mitigation measures 19
