Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation, Reflection and Learning (PMERL)
Community-based adaptation to climate change involves learning at all stages – learning about how climate change affects people and their livelihoods and environment, how to adapt to these changes, measuring progress, and then reflecting on how to improve all of the above. PMERL aims to facilitate this process, providing guidance on how to develop a participatory process that supports monitoring and evaluation, reflection and learning in community-based adaptation (CBA) projects, as well as projects integrating CBA.

CARE is pleased to introduce a revised PMERL Manual, now available online at This manual is intended for use by project managers and field staff, communities and local partners engaged in designing and implementing community-based adaptation projects. It is based on the original PMERL manual which CARE developed in 2011/12 with the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED).
