Ecosystem-based Approaches to Adaptation:
Current and Innovative Methodologies for Implementation Action
Ecosystem-based approaches to Adaptation (EbA) have emerged as one suite of solutions to help many of the world’s most vulnerable regions buffer the worst impacts of climate change, maintain the resilience of natural ecosystems, their ecosystem services and the species that support them, and help people adapt to changing conditions.
While various approaches for determining the necessity and feasibility of adaptation measures have been considered as part of EbA planning, new and innovative methodologies are being generated to address growing socio-economic and environmental complexities, at which Conservation International (CI) is at the forefront.
Please join CI and learn from a panel of experts about what is working and what is still needed to make EbA a lasting solution to climate change vulnerability.
