Monitoring and evaluation of climate policies in Latin America: lessons learned from a community of regional practice
About the webinar
The Community of Practice on Monitoring and Evaluation of Climate Policies (CoP M&E) facilitated by the EUROCLIMA+ Program, through the FIIAPP Foundation, and the LEDSLAC Platform was created in 2018 to address the need identified in Latin American countries to have systems robust, well built and practical, for monitoring and evaluation of climate policies and their action plans. These systems are key pieces, both to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of adaptation and mitigation processes, incorporating new information and lessons learned, as well as to verify and transparently report compliance with the commitments made to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Paris Agreement and other multilateral agreements.
With this in mind, and with the participation of representatives from 17 Latin American countries, for two years, the M&E COP has organized virtual exchange sessions and face-to-face meetings to exchange experiences and strengthen capacities on priority issues such as the governance of M&E systems, the Enhanced Transparency Framework of the Paris Agreement, adaptation metrics, among others. In this process, valuable lessons have been collected that will be shared during this webinar.
The webinar will be in Spanish. If you have any questions or queries, write to the LEDS LAC Platform at firstname.lastname@example.org.
