Designing Adaptation Impact Evaluations in Mozambique
ND-GAIN collaborated with the Notre Dame Initiative for Global Development (NDIGD) and the Universidade Católica de Moçambique (UCM) to assess the impacts of early-warning systems for climate-related disasters in Mozambique
Funded by the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), the research consortium designed a study to evaluate the impacts of Community-based Disaster Management Committees (CLGRCs) and early-warning systems to show what and how interventions lead to increased climate resilience, and explore the degree of relevance and effectiveness of interventions across multiple sectors of the human and natural environment.
Experts at ND-GAIN also applied the Country Index methodology to develop indicators that measure local climate risks, adaptive capacities, and preparation for climate disaster reduction across human and natural systems. Outcomes include understanding of disaster risks and preparedness variables that contribute to climate adaptation and resilience at Beira and Búzi District in Mozambique.
