High ambitions, slow implementation? Monitoring and evaluating climate adaptation in a politically sensitive environment

Adaptation to the consequences of climate change is inevitable. This is why government agencies and public bodies across the world are formulating ambitious objectives. How do we know whether government agencies and public bodies actually do what they promise? How do we know when to adjust, and by how much? The monitoring and evaluation of climate adaptation are crucial, but barely get off the ground in practice. Dr. Robbert Biesbroek's project examines the political-administrative mechanisms that make the development and implementation of climate adaptation evaluation so difficult and creates politically sensitive solutions to break through these barriers.
