Dr Marta Olazabal will participate in session 392 “What is effective adaptation, for whom, and how do we know? Findings from adaptation policies, NAPs and M&E on vulnerability assessments, measurements and effectiveness” at the Adaptation Futures Conference hosted in Montreal, Canada.

This session answers the following questions:

  • How can progress reporting enhance the implementation and effectiveness of National Adaptation Plans, and what can be learned from existing practices?
  • What is the state-of-the-art evidence on effective adaptation?
  • How can adaptation planning and policy design improve to ensure robust adaptation?
  • How can vulnerability assessments facilitate reaching those most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change?
  • How can effective adaptation be measured using indicators?
  • How can we ensure learning occurs from MEL processes and throughout the adaptation policy cycle?
