TAMD Climate Change Indicator - Methodological Note. Indicator 1: Climate Change Integration into Planning
Tracking Adaptation and Measuring Development (TAMD) Climate Change Indicator: Representation of strategies that address climate change in relevant planning documents and processes
This indicator is designed to capture the extent to which considerations of climate change (risks, opportunities) are integrated into planning processes in national, sectoral or other institutional contexts (e.g. donor institutions or MDBs). It is relevant to interventions intended to build capacity to address climate change through the development of climate plans, strategies and mainstreaming mechanisms/ systems.
The indicator can be used to assess the performance of an individual capacity building programme, through evaluation of the target system (e.g. ministry, sector, institution) at the beginning, during, and at the end of the programme.
The indicator may also be used to assess the status of climate change integration in systems targeted by multiple programmes, or simply in systems whose progress in this area is to be monitored (e.g. for self-assessment by institutions pursuing their own climate change integration initiatives without external support).
