First regional meeting on monitoring and evaluation of climate change policies in Latin America

  • EUROCLIMA+ and South-South Cooperation, European Union-funded programmes, join forces to strengthen climate policies in Latin America
  • Strengthening the monitoring of mitigation progress is key to limiting the rise in global temperatures by 2°C.

Mexico City-Mexico, 16 April 2018. The first Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Policy Monitoring and Evaluation Workshop is taking place in Mexico City, a regional meeting where public policy and climate change evaluation experts will work together to improve climate policies in Latin America.

The meeting, organised in the framework of the Climate Governance component of the EUROCLIMA+ programme and in conjunction with the South-South Cooperation Evaluation programme, both implemented by the International and Ibero-America Foundation for Administration and Public Policy, F.S.P. (FIIAPP), will be held at the Hilton Hotel from 16 to 18 April and will bring together more than 70 participants from 17 Latin American countries.

This will be a regional workshop that arises from the requests that some countries have made to us to support them in improving the link between Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Policies and their Action Plans with robust monitoring and evaluation systems, which allow them to respond to the commitments made in the Paris Agreement," says Valentina Martinez, FIIAPP Coordinator for the EUROCLIMA+ programme.

According to the organisers, monitoring and evaluation practices for climate change policies and action plans are relatively new and are still under construction and consolidation at the global level. However, there are already concrete proposals and experiences that can be useful for making progress on facilitating these evaluation practices.

The workshop will promote an exchange between representatives of Latin American countries, European institutions and the United Nations on successful examples that exist in both continents on issues such as the monitoring of adaptation to climate change or the co-benefits of energy reforms. It will also promote inter-institutional coordination and the creation of communication channels that enable progress in measurement, transparency and accountability in the field of climate change.

This first regional meeting will be inaugurated by Marie Augouy, Head of the European Union Cooperation Section in Mexico and by Neydi Cruz, General Director of International Cooperation, Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT) and will include the participation of officials from the National Institute of Ecology and Climate Change (INECC) as well as the National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy (CONEVAL).

The EUROCLIMA+ Programme is a programme funded by the European Union, which offers a wide range of specialised services aimed at supporting the implementation of the Paris Agreement commitments in the field of climate governance and financing and technical assistance for the implementation of projects with Latin American countries on: forests, biodiversity and ecosystems; disaster risk management and reduction; urban mobility; resilient food production; water management with an urban resilience perspective; and renewable energy and energy efficiency.

EUROCLIMA+ components are implemented by the following implementing agencies: the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), the French Development Agency (AFD), the Economic Commission for Latin America (ECLAC), Expertise France, the International and Ibero-America Foundation for Administration and Public Policy (FIIAPP), the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) and UN Environment.


The aim of the South-South Evaluation Cooperation Support Project for the Promotion of Public Policy Evaluation in Latin America and the Caribbean is to share experiences in evaluation generated in the realm of public institutions in Latin America, and to carry out technical support assistance among peers to make this tool an institutionalised practice in their respective countries, and thus improve learning and informed decision-making in the field of projects, programmes and public policies.
