This report aims to support government stakeholders and other non-state actors involved in the negotiations on the Global Goal on Adaptation (GGA) by providing non-prescriptive and pragmatic directions for finalizing a GGA framework by COP 28. This report first provides an overview of key concepts and elements needed under monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) frameworks, along with examples and relevant conceptualizations of the GGA for actors to advance their understanding and views of the prospective GGA framework. This will also provide a basis for language and ideas with which parties can engage. The core outlined elements should include the following:
• Establishing an ultimate goal for the framework
• Organizing interventions around the theory of change
• Using multiple sources of information, including indicators and targets (either output/outcome/impact-level indicators or process/output-type targets and indicators)
• Defining roles and approaches for analysis and learning.
