Action area


Case summary

The main objective of Morocco’s comprehensive Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system for adaptation is to provide the country’s various regions with an easily accessible instrument to control, analyze and visualize climate-related data and actions. More specifically, Morocco’s M&E system pursues three objectives: i) monitor & evaluate the vulnerability of key sectors; ii) support the monitoring of adaptation actions and provide input for their improvement; iii) collect and systematize successful experiences.

Morocco’s M&E system is a good practice case because it is science-based, it has been developed through a broad and participatory consultation process and it is financially viable. Overall, the M&E system is well aligned with decision-making structures.
