The Tracking Adaptation and Measuring Development (TAMD) framework offers a ‘twin track’ framework for use in many contexts and at many scales to assess and compare the effectiveness of interventions that directly or indirectly help populations adapt to climate change. TAMD differs from other assessment frameworks by emphasising the need to assess development interventions in the light of changing climate risks. This is to avoid missing effective interventions whose outcomes are obscured by increasing risks and vulnerability.

This paper outlines the steps needed to apply the TAMD framework, providing practical guidance on how to put the concepts outlined in Cliimate Change Working Paper no. 1 into operation (see Additional Information).
