Tracking Adaptation in Agricultural Sectors

Climate Change Adaptation Indicators

image of Tracking Adaptation in Agricultural Sectors

Tracking adaptation processes and outcomes is a continuous process which also encompasses monitoring and evaluation – one of the important elements of the climate change adaptation. A detailed review of existing literature on adaptation tracking tools showed a number of challenges and limitations related to their application in agricultural sectors. Though some of the tools are technically sound, practical use is constrained by non-availability of adequate baseline data and information. In addition, several of these frameworks are individual project specific, complex and thus seldom contribute to better informed policy level decisions and adaptation planning. This paper outlines the importance of tracking adaptation in the context of the implementation of the Paris Agreement and provides a flexible and consistent indicator framework for tracking adaptation in agricultural sectors (includes agriculture, forestry and fisheries and aquaculture) at national level. The framework is based on the recognition that adaptation should be tracked by analyzing a number of different indicators across agricultural sub-sectors.

Conclusions

Adaptation tracking refers to the monitoring of processes and outcomes of adaptation actions at national level. It shows a system’s progress towards vulnerability reduction, adaptive capacity enhancement and mainstreaming of adaptation priorities into agricultural policies and plans. The framework and methodology for Tracking Adaptation in Agricultural Sectors (TAAS) outlined in this document helps to understand how multiple interventions contribute to climate change adaptation and resilience building.
