SEA Change CoP

With funding from the Rockefeller Foundation and technical and logistical support from Pact, SEA Change is a maturing virtual Community of Practice (CoP) focused on the monitoring and evaluati



on of climate change interventions in Asia, and beyond. Where the community was initially focused on Southeast Asia - hence the 'SEA' in SEA Change - the focus now includes the entire Asian continent in its widest definition.

Climate change is a real challenge globally and scientists, policy makers, and practitioners across government, private sector and the not-for-profit sectors are struggling to find effective ways to adapt to the increasingly disruptive effects of changes to ecosystems and livelihoods of people. Without concerted and focused action, many of the development gains made in alleviating poverty will be wiped out. Learning how to design, implement and scale up more effective interventions to address the effects of climate change requires advances in approaches to capture learning, monitoring progress and evaluating achievements.

A letter of intent has been signed between the Community of Evaluators South Asia and SEA Change CoP to to encourage and support a mutually beneficial cooperation. The intent is to provide opportunities and learning that will benefit and reinforce the work of both communities individually, and generate innovative tools and approaches. In practice this means for example that we will aim to share resources across platforms, encourage cross-posting, invite one another to events, support each other in our missions and feature the collaboration in meetings, events and online.
