Discussion series on EbA-relevant tools and methods: Outcome paper and further sources now online

We need effective and field-proven tools and methods to support adaptive management and decision-making and consider EbA measures within an overall adaptation strategy. From September-November 2016, the online discussion series of the International EbA Community of Practice centered around three key questions:

1) Which EbA-relevant tools exist already and have been used successfully at different stages of the mainstreaming cycle?

2) How to adopt existing tools to an EbA context?

3) How to make these tools available to a broader audience?

In addition to the webinar recordings, an outcome paper on EbA-relevant tools and methods and a list of further sources is now available here.

Sharing success in Ecosystem-based Adaptation – EbA Solution Portal now online

What if we could learn from each other’s success? The EbA Solution Portal fosters sharing of field-proven knowledge and experience on Ecosystem-based Adaptation in different regions and ecosystems around the globe. It shows that inspiring and replicable solutions can be found everywhere on this planet and that EbA or “green solutions” are a state-of-the-art-reply to climate change impacts and deliver a multitude of benefits for societies, economies and environment.

This new global exchange platform under the PANORAMA initiative was officially launched at CBD CoP 13 in Cancún. Now the portal is open to connect practitioners and decision makers and to solution providers from all countries, sectors and levels to share their stories.
