Should the next UNFCCC COP have a session on evaluations?

The 19th conference of the parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will take place in the Polish city of Warsaw from November 11 – 22, 2013.

Thousands of delegates from across the world are expected in Warsaw to continue consideration of a legally binding agreement to deal with climate change beyond 2020.

But while the spotlight may be on the ability of negotiators to harsh a strong and universally binding deal to address the growing effects of climate change as well as the future of the Kyoto Protocol, the growing portfolio of climate change adaptation and mitigation projects and initiatives underscores the importance of evaluation to determine their effectiveness.

Therefore, as the largest gathering of climate change stakeholders in the world, shouldn’t there be a session addressing evaluations?
