Mainstreaming EbA - Strengthening Ecosystem based Adaptation in Decision Making Processes

01 Jul 2015 to 28 Feb 2023


Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) to the impacts of climate change and the integration of climate risks are increasingly forming a central and integral part of planning and implementation processes at local, national and international level. The Global Project Mainstreaming EbA actively supported this development whilst offering support for knowledge transfer. Apart from ensuring the exchange of domain expertise on concepts, methods, instruments and success criteria for Ecosystem-based Adaptation strategies, there was also a clear focus on working with partners to develop and disseminate pragmatic solutions. Project partners included the UN and other international organisations and ministries, as well as a number of private enterprises from sectors such as tourism, insurance and construction. By focusing on the transfer of know-how and experience, the project supported a global learning and knowledge network and allowing UN negotiations to draw on empirical knowledge.
