Working with nature to adapt
to a changing climate

The EbA Support Facility

Do you work in an EbA project or on EbA-related matters? Are you planning a Climate Risk Assessment in the next months? Or do you want to analyse the benefits and impacts of EbA measures in your projectWhat about the establishment of an effective M&E system for EbA? 

Then the new EbA Support Facility might be interesting for you: 

Since 2015, the Global Project on ‘Mainstreaming Ecosystem-based Adaptation’ prepares, bundles and shares knowledge around EbA. Our goal is to strengthen the ability of decision-makers at international, national and local level to mainstream Ecosystem-based Adaptation into policy and planning processes. This involves a mix of policy advice, capacity development and the establishment of knowledge networks based on practical tools and examples. The EbA knowledge base is constantly growing, and so is the number of projects around the world focusing on Nature-based Solutions to adaptation.  

Through the new EbA Support Facility, projects on EbA or EbA relevant issues have the opportunity to access bespoke technical and strategic guidance and backstopping at critical stages along their planning, implementation and evaluation process with the focus on any of the following topics: 

  • Climate Risk Assessment (ENG, ESP, RU)
  • Valuation of EbA measures (ENG, ESP)
  • Monitoring & Evaluation (ENG, ESP)

Why shall I apply for assistance from the EbA Support Facility?

Since 2015 we have collected, created and bundled expertise on EbA. We would like to enable practitioners to use this knowledge base. You will gain support and new ideas from our experts to sustain the respective processes in the long-term. We offer you also financial support, if needed. In close collaboration we would like to document the implementation process with you, so that all involved parties will have communication materials afterwards.

Why do we offer this?

As a global project on Mainstreaming EbA, we have an interest in making implementation as easy for you as possible. We consider this as an important part of our onboarding work to support you at the current stage of the EbA relevant project. 
Apart from this, we are not only very curious how the EbA knowledge products can be disseminated, but also how they can be implemented and developed further to best support you.

How will the support process look like?

How the support will look like is highly dependent on your request. Please be as precise as possible in the application form. 
Jointly, we will elaborate a support process fitted to your needs once your request has been selected by the Global Project on ‘Mainstreaming EbA’.
