Monitoring, reporting and evaluation approach in Helsinki Metropolitan Area MRE in New York: lessons to learn for Europe as well


The Helsinki Metropolitan Area adopted its adaptation strategy in 2012. It focuses on measures that address cross-sectoral or cross-municipal impacts of climate change and can produce synergies or efficiency gains through broader collaboration. One of the actions in the strategy is creating a system to monitor annually the implementation of measures, changes in the operational environment and reporting of implementation and changes

In 2010, the New York City Panel on Climate Change (NPCC) issued a report proposing the development of indicators and a monitoring system (Jacob et al., 2010). It recommended that the system cover a range of quantifiable indicators relating to physical climate change variables; risk exposure, vulnerability and impacts; adaptation measures; and new research in the previous three categories. This implies an active learning element and interest in benefiting from research findings and best practices from elsewhere. It emphasised that it is important for different actors (scientists, engineers, city officials) to collaborate in defining and selecting indicators.
