An article by NYCE Board Member, Nur Kalyoncu: Policy-driven monitoring and evaluation
This article is about some environmental case studies from countries in the European Union on whether policy-driven M&E helps adaptive management of socio-ecological systems.
While the US is drifting away from its environmental progress and promises due to governmental decisions, it is still being affected by climate change in a variety of ways. We wanted to share this article with our NYCE community as it might serve as a resource for MEL practitioners working in the environmental field to compare different developed regions/countries and draw lessons for future implementation.
