Climate Eval 2014: Timo Leiter, GIZ

Large donor governments need to understand how their funds are being used and if they are effective ways of financing change, says Timo Leiter from GIZ, the German government’s development arm.

“Because the donors are spending a lot of money they are looking – for example with adaptation – they are delivering results and can answer the question: are people becoming less vulnerable?”

About the conference:

Second International Conference on Evaluating Climate Change and Development

Washington, November 4-6, 2014

The conference brings together evaluation professionals, academics, policymakers and other stakeholders from developed and developing countries with the purpose of fostering the exchange of ideas and methods to evaluate climate change and sustainable development.

The conference is a follow-up to the first international conference which was held in Alexandria, Egypt, in 2008. Over 200 attendees participated in that conference which resulted in creation of the Climate-Eval community of practice, and the publication of the authoritative book, ”Evaluating Climate Change and Development”, that was the first one focusing on the topic.
