A Prototype Monitoring, Learning and Evaluation Platform: Benchmarking Climate Resilience in the Private Sector for Proadapt (pdf)
Monitoring project investments and progress toward climate resilience in the private sector requires extensions to the normal project-level indicators of outputs. Based on a conceptual framework of a continuum of adaptation in achieving resilience, a prototype Monitoring, Learning and Evaluation (MLE) platform requires colearning with key stakeholders, benchmarking the toolkit in actual projects and bringing together a robust toolkit.
Overview of Private Sector Adaptation Technologies and Initiatives Applicable to Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises in Honduras and Nicaragua, July 2016 (pdf)
Achieving climate resilience for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) across the LAC region requires working with an extensive network of small producers in supply and value chains, cooperative associations, a few larger companies, financial entities, and government entities. This work should aim to strengthen MSMEs’ capacity to respond to a changing environment by improving their understanding of how climate change could impact their business or sector as well as improving their business management capacity and sustainability, access to funding, and management of natural resources. Timely investment could achieve significant results. This report presents 19 initiatives that have been screened and considered to improve MSMEs’ climate resilience and the rationale behind their inclusion.
