Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems to track adaptation outcomes are a crucial element of the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process. However, these systems are often complex to design and implement.

Challenges include measuring results amid uncertainty, limited baseline information and data availability, and multiple scales of interventions, among others. Kenya is working to overcome these challenges by using a phased approach to develop and implement a doable and effective adaptation M&E system.

This Country Brief presents Kenya’s experience with the design of its adaptation M&E system. It highlights Kenya’s climate change policy context, priority adaptation actions and principles to provide guidance for the design of Kenya’s adaptation M&E system. The brief concludes by proposing next steps to move forward in a phased approach to design and implementation of the country’s adaptation M&E system.
