LDCF/SCCF Adaptation Monitoring and Assessment Tool (AMAT)
The 2014-2018 Programming Strategy on Adaptation introduces a revised results framework for the GEF Adaptation Program, structured around three objectives with associated outcomes and indicators. Therefore, the updated Adaptation Monitoring and Assessment Tool (AMAT) presents the ways in which the Secretariat will operationalize the revised results framework and related aspects of the Programming Strategy as a basis for enhanced results-based management (RBM) of climate change adaptation under the LDCF and the SCCF.
The Programming Strategy on Adaptation presents an opportunity to review and, where needed, improve on the policies, procedures, tools and practices that have been applied to results-based management of climate change adaptation over the past years.
Specifically, based on past experience, the updated RBM framework for climate change adaptation attempts to address four critical needs:
Enable more comprehensive portfolio-level monitoring and reporting on progress and outcomes, based on more consistent definitions and methodologies;
Introduce, where appropriate, qualitative tools and methodologies that allow portfolio-level monitoring and reporting to go beyond quantitative outputs;
Establish appropriate indicators and methodologies for monitoring progress and outcomes in line with evolving guidance by the UNFCCC COP; and
Seek, where appropriate, greater consistency with the tools and methodologies used by other funds, programs and agencies.
