TAMD is a 'twin track' framework that evaluates adaptation success as a combination of how widely and how well countries or institutions manage climate risks (Track 1) and how successful adaptation interventions are in reducing climate vulnerability and in keeping development on course (Track 2). The aim is to generate bespoke frameworks for individual countries tailored to specific contexts. TAMD's dual approach can track adaptation at all levels and from all sources, from initiatives involving several countries, various interventions in a single country, and down to local projects. It can assess whether climate change adaptation leads to effective development and how development interventions can boost communities' capacity to adapt to climate change by evaluating an intervention within and across the two tracks.
