Opening Plenary: 2nd International Conference

Watch the opening session of the 2nd International Conference on Evaluating Climate Change and Development. The plenary was inaugurated by Juha I. Uitto (Global Environmental Facility Independent Evaluation Office) together with Monika Egger Kissling (Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation) and Chizuru Aoki (Representative of CEO of Global Environmental Facility). The opening session was followed by a key note speech by Andrew Steer (World Resource Institute).

Under the umbrella of the Climate-Eval Community of Practice, the conference brought evaluation professionals, academics, policymakers and other stakeholders from developed and developing countries together with the purpose of fostering the exchange of ideas and methods to evaluate climate change and sustainable development.

 

Dr. Andrew Steer, WRI

Explains why it is vital organizations and governments learn how to evaluate climate mitigation and adaptation projects more effectively.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Second International Conference on Evaluating Climate Change and Development at IFC headquarters, Steer says it is becoming clear what projects are cost effective and offer global benefits.

Evaluation is a powerful tool for policymakers to understand what climate projects works and what do not, says Juha Uitto, director of the Independent Evaluation Office at the Global Environment Facility (GEF).

‘We have to learn for what has worked so far and in what specific situations. This conference is really part of that process,” he says.

Better evaluation measures are important to work out if climate policies are boosting development prospects as well as protecting the environment, says Jyotsna Puri, director of 3ie.

‘What has been ignored for a long time is to identify whether policies need to trade off with development and the environment,” she says.

The conference brought together evaluation professionals, academics, policymakers and other stakeholders from developed and developing countries with the purpose of fostering the exchange of ideas and methodologies to evaluate climate change and sustainable development.

The conference was a follow-up to the first international conference which was held in Alexandria, Egypt, in 2008. Over 200 attendees participated in that conference which resulted in creation of the Climate-Eval community of practice. The publication of the authoritative book, ”Evaluating Climate Change and Development”, that was the first one focusing on the topic.
