The International Institute of Environment and Development (IIED) prepared an experience sharing workshop which focused on Tracking, Adaptation, Measuring, and Development (TAMD) a tool used to track and measure adaptation to climate change and the impacts of such adoption.
The workshop that was launched at Harmony Hotel on Monday 23 February was a platform for sharing country experiences including Ethiopia’s with the TAMD framework to develop a structure for climate resilient green economy at different levels.
Tracking, Adaptation, Measuring, and Development (TAMD) is a framework that demonstrates if climate finance has been well spent and that the climate vulnerability of communities has been reduced. It also focuses on gauging how effective adaptation has been, and if it is tailored flexibly to local and/or national contexts. Participants talked emphatically that climate financing is being made available through climate change adaptation channels such as the Green Climate Fund, and countries in developing worlds need to be ready to use such finances. In order for climate adaptation funds to be absorbed, there needs to be a system that tracks and assesses how well the fund is used. The TAMD framework was set up to allow for such monitoring to happen and to provide funders with proof of tangible outcomes of the adaptation measures that will be taken.
The TAMD framework has been used in Ethiopia to assess how soil and water conservation has contributed to the Sustainable Land Management Program (SLMP) that was launched in 2008. Applying the TAMD, factors that contributed to declining agricultural productivity and persistent rural poverty were explored, and resilience methods employing soil and water conservation were discovered.
An IIED research paper entitled “Tracking Adaptation and Tracking Development in Ethiopia Through the TAMD Assessment Method” reported that areas where SLMP was implemented has benefited immensely. The assessment showed land rehabilitation measures had helped decreased the size of degraded land significantly, had resorted natural water supply sources, water and crop productivity has increased.
It is estimated that about 30,000 hectares of land is lost annually due to soil erosion in Ethiopia. Frameworks such as TAMD will be crucial to proving the effectiveness of government intervention to harness such challenges, it was said.
The workshop was attended by government representatives and researchers from countries such as Tanzania, South Africa, Nepal and Pakistan along with representatives from the Green Climate Fund.
