This paper outlines the importance of tracking adaptation in the context of the implementation of the Paris Agreement and provides a flexible and consistent indicator framework for tracking adaptation in agricultural sectors (includes agriculture, forestry and fisheries and aquaculture) at national level. The framework is based on the recognition that adaptation should be tracked by analyzing a number of different indicators across agricultural sub-sectors. It is useful when developing the monitoring and evaluation framework of a NAP.

The Module 6 of the 2017 "National Adaptation Plans (NAPs): Building Climate Resilience into Agriculture Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)" reflects on Element D – "Reporting, Monitoring and Review"of the NAPs and presents the processes of setting up effective adaptation M&E systems for the agriculture sectors. One of the tools presented is impact evaluation. It further introduces the role of outreach and communications for enhancing the project objectives and provides overview of the steps and best practices of building and implementing effective communications strategy.

The Module 3 of the 2017 "National Adaptation Plans (NAPs): Building Climate Resilience into Agriculture Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)" focuses on the importance of using the latest available information and enhancing a strong knowledge base in adaptation planning. It discusses different types and sources of information available for conducting vulnerability and climate risk assessments, and the importance of integrating different types of knowledge, introduces interactive tools and approaches for modelling climate change impact on agriculture, measuring impact and mainstreaming gender into adaptation planning. Examples for these are drawn from the Programme on Climate Information for Resilient Development in Africa (CIRDA), Modelling System for Agricultural Impacts of Climate Change (MOSAICC), Agriculture Stress Index System (ASIS), along with gender analysis approaches.
