Hacer que la Adaptación basada en Ecosistemas (AbE) sea eficaz – Un marco para definir criterios de cualificación y estándares de calidad
Jul 24, 2017 - Poster - Topic: Ecosystem-based Adaptation

Este póster ilustra las principales características del Documento Técnico “Hacer que la Adaptación basada en Ecosistemas (AbE) sea eficaz – Un marco para definir criterios de cualificación y estándares de calidad”, el cual proporciona un marco de evaluación práctica para diseñar, implementar y monitorear las medidas EbA proponiendo un conjunto de 3 elementos, 5 criterios de calificación y 20 estándares de calidad e indicadores de ejemplo.
Se propone responder a dos preguntas:
1) que cualifica como EbA?
2) cómo diseñar y aplicar las medidas de EbA de manera más efectiva?
El documento fue desarrollado conjuntamente por GIZ, UICN e IIED junto con el apoyo activo de los miembros de Friends of EbA (FEBA) y la Comunidad de Práctica de EbA.

Making Ecosystem-based Adaptation Effective – A Framework for Defining Qualification Criteria and Quality Standards (poster)
Jul 07, 2017 - Poster - Topic: Ecosystem-based Adaptation

This poster is illustrating the main features of the Technical Paper, “Making Ecosystem-based Adaptation Effective – A Framework for Defining Qualification Criteria and Quality Standards” provides a practical assessment framework for designing, implementing and monitoring EbA measures by proposing a set of 3 elements, 5 qualification criteria and 20 quality standards and example indicators.
It intends to answer two questions:
1) what qualifies as EbA?
2) how to design & implement EbA measures more effectively?
The paper was jointly developed by GIZ, IUCN and IIED together with active support from Friends of EbA (FEBA) members and the EbA Community of Practice.

Documentation of EbA Knowledge Day – 11 May during UNFCCC SBSTA 46 in Bonn
Jul 07, 2017 - Workshop report - Topic: Ecosystem-based Adaptation

EbA Knowledge Day that was convened on 11 May 2-5 pm during UNFCCC SBSTA 46 in Bonn fostered sharing knowledge and practical experiences for strengthening EbA into policy frameworks, at national and subnational level based on practical examples. The event covered
a) Key statements of BMUB and panelists from South Africa, Swedish Biodiversity Center, Uganda, Philippines and FAO
b) Market place inputs and poster documentation, as well as
c) Final key statements from participants.

Inputs during the panel discussion and market place resulted in a lively exchange among delegates and representatives from governments, international organizations, NGOs and research on knowledge and practical experiences for strengthening Ecosystem-based adaptation into policy frameworks, at national and subnational level based on practical examples.

Good Practices on Planning, Implementing and Monitoring & Evaluating Ecosystem-based Adaptation to climate change – A summary of GIZ project examples based on a submission to the UNFCCC SBSTTA Nairobi Work Programme
Jul 04, 2017 - Report - Topic: Ecosystem-based Adaptation

Under the UNFCCC NWP synthesis report on “adaptation addressing ecosystems”, GIZ compiled a selection of 7 EbA good practices based on the EbA Solutions portal under PANORAMA and following the Solution-ing approach. The case studies documented in this report are expected to provide exemplary insights about approaches, methods, best practices and lessons learnt from a larger portfolio of projects dealing with EbA and interrelated areas. A larger set of examples can be found at the online platform PANORAMA – Solutions for a Healthy Planet (www.panorama.solutions), a partnership initiative hosted by GIZ and IUCN to document and promote examples of field-proven, replicable solutions across a range of conservation, climate change and development topics.

Making Ecosystem-based Adaptation Effective – A Framework for Defining Qualification Criteria and Quality Standards (technical paper)
Jun 27, 2017 - Tool - Topic: Ecosystem-based Adaptation

In the context of increasing political commitment and funding it is essential to sharpen the understanding among policy makers and practitioners on what qualifies as EbA, to avoid the incorrect re-packaging of “business-as-usual” conservation or development approaches. The Technical Paper, “Making Ecosystem-based Adaptation Effective – A Framework for Defining Qualification Criteria and Quality Standards” provides a practical assessment framework for designing, implementing and monitoring EbA measures by proposing a set of 3 elements, 5 qualification criteria and 20 quality standards and example indicators.

It intends to answer two questions:
1) what qualifies as EbA?
2) how to design & implement EbA measures more effectively?

The paper was jointly developed by GIZ, IUCN and IIED together with active support from Friends of EbA (FEBA) members and the EbA Community of Practice.

Post-Pam: lessons learned for [German] development cooperation in Vanuatu and the Pacific
May 24, 2017 - Study - Topic: Climate Risk Management

Tropical Cyclone Pam has been recognised as an opportunity to learn lessons and draw up recommendations for [German] development cooperation and its partners in the region on how to address the issue of comprehensive climate risk management, including climate risk insurance. The objectives of this study were to identify those lessons in order to inform Germany’s current and future regional cooperation in Vanuatu and the South Pacific region. The study gives an overview of socio-economic characteristics, disaster risk, and CRM institutions and programmes in Vanuatu and the region.
