Cost and Values Analysis of TAMD in Kenya
Implementing the tracking adaptation and measuring development (TAMD) monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework allows public authorities to assess climate risk management processes and contributions from adaptation or development policy. In Kenya, TAMD is used to introduce climate risk management into institutional decision making and to plan, manage and evaluate local policy. Yet we know little about the costs and benefits of applying TAMD – in Kenya or elsewhere. This study demonstrates the additional costs and benefits of implementing TAMD, providing a complete costing of TAMD operations and a range of benefit valuations (avoided losses, expenditures and investment requirements) associated with greater climate resilience.
