With growing impacts of climate change across the world, countries are increasingly making climate change adaptation a policy priority. Assessing progress in the implementation of national adaptation policies is a critical step in understanding how adaptation efforts contribute to strengthening climate resilience, and whether they do so effectively.
This stream of work aims to enhance adaptation measurement, by:
The OECD is developing a report on the state of play in measuring progress in the implementation of national adaptation policies, and discuss the challenges and national approaches to overcome them.
-> Stay tuned !
The OECD analyses climate change adaptation measurement and indicator frameworks through in-depth country case studies, highlighting key challenges and good practices.
-> Discover our case study in the United Kingdom (forthcoming)
This roundtable, organised by the OECD and the UK Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), discussed the critical need for, as well as existing challenges and achievements in, measuring progress in the implementation of national adaptation policies.
Measuring progress in implementing national adaptation policies | 28 September 2021
This meeting, co-convened by the OECD and the UK Climate Change Committee, brought together members of the OECD Task Force on Climate Change Adaptation and international experts working on adaptation measurement. Experts from countries and other organisations shared experiences and discussed progress and challenges in developing measurement frameworks and instruments.
Task Force on Climate Change Adaptation
The OECD Task Force on Climate Change Adaptation (TFCCA) brings together over 70 countries and organisations to promote concrete solutions and accelerate policy action on climate adaptation. It provides policy makers with a platform to discuss and exchange experiences, best practices and the latest research on climate variability, adaptation and resilience.
