OECD COP26 Virtual Pavilion

Tracking a moving target: How to measure progress and policy effectiveness in adapting to climate change

Nov 5, 2021 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM


The UK Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and the OECD are organising a roundtable to discuss the critical need for, as well as existing challenges and achievements in, measuring progress in implementing national adaptation policies. Country representatives will come together to share insights and discuss key policy priorities their countries are pursuing to accelerate progress in adaptation measurement. The discussions will benefit from an ongoing OECD work that supports countries in strengthening their adaptation measurement frameworks. Panellists will reflect on how these experiences can inform a broader international debate on measuring, and reporting on, achievements in climate change adaptation, notably under the Global Goal on Adaptation. Moderation: Andrew Carr, Head of Adaptation Science, Climate Evidence, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra)
