ClimDev-Africa is the first programme to support investments in climate information services (CIS) across the continent. It is managed by the African Development Bank, the Africa Union Commission and Africa Climate Policy Centre (part of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa). ClimDev-Africa is putting in place ways to assess the effectiveness and economic returns of CIS investments. This briefing describes how we are using the tracking adaptation and measuring development (TAMD) framework, together with other tools, to assess the costs and benefits of CIS investments.
