Climate Services Partnership
  • Informal, interdisciplinary partnership (+200 members) working to improve development and provision of climate services worldwide
  • Created 2011 at first International Conference on Climate Services (ICCS 1), in NY
  • Engaged in a range of collaborative activities on evaluation, guidance, training, etc. (Economic Evaluation Working Group)
  • Looking forward to ICCS 3, December 4-6 in Jamaica
csp case studies
CSP case studies
  • More than 30 case studies from a range of partners, in 10 sectors, from regions around the world
  • Case study template developed jointly with the GFCS
  • Case study analysis revealed information on best practice in climate service provision
  • Lessons learned re: the collection of useful information on the climate services themselves
csp evaluations
CSP evaluations
  • Two large-scale evaluations of agrometeorological projects (India, Mali)
  • Science assessment, institutional assessment, field assessment (awareness, use, skill, communication)
  • Informative; time and resource intensive
mid level assessments
“Mid-level” assessments
  • Develop a methodology to assess climate services at relatively modest levels of investment
  • Provide information for operational and investment decisions, provide guidance for the development of future services
expert workshop march 11 12 i
Expert workshop, March 11 & 12 (I)
  • Challenges to evaluation (stochasticity; information is leaky; hard to identify information “use;” hard to characterize the benefits of climate services)
  • Conceptual framework to consider metrics for evaluation:
        • Problem identification and the decision-making context
        • Characteristics, tailoring and dissemination of the climate information
        • Governance, process and structure of the service
        • Economic value of the service
expert workshop march 11 12 ii
Expert workshop, March 11 & 12 (II)
  • What kind of assessment are we looking for?
  • How might evaluations differ depending on the services in question?
  • What kinds of information will we consider adequate?
methodological guidelines
Methodological guidelines
  • Aim of the evaluation
  • Underlying hypothesis of the service
  • Supply of information
  • Demand for information
  • Engagement between users and providers
  • Identifying best practices
next steps
Next steps
  • ~5 evaluations in developing countries
  • ~5 evaluation in developed countries
  • Analysis to reveal good practices and strategies that might be transferred to different contexts
  • Analysis to reveal best practice regarding evaluation
  • Summary and synthesis at ICCS 3, in December
