The purposes and applications of MRE

M&E plays a central role in identifying how best to reduce vulnerability and build resilience to climate change (Bours et al., 2014c)

A number of common purposes and applications can be identified that appear to have catalysed efforts to improve MRE of adaptation at a range of scales. The most significant of these purposes are examined below. These illustrate the value of MRE in improving adaptation performance and emphasise the critical role it can play in improving adaptation policy and practice. It is important to note that there can be tensions between these purposes. In particular, learning can conflict with accountability as standards or protocols driven by accountability may not be conducive to generating a learning environment or allow for mistakes to inform the learning process. In chapter 2.1, we explore the purposes and objectives specifically for national level MRE of adaptation in European countries in greater detail.
