This is a practical guide for planners and practitioners to better understand the outcomes and impacts of on-the-ground Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) projects, working with and enhancing nature to reduce the negative impacts of climate change on people.
The Guidebook describes key considerations and components for each step of Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of EbA projects and points to additional tools and methodologies that can be used in specific circumstances. The Guidebook should be consulted in the early stages of designing an EbA intervention, but it can also be used if an intervention has already begun to help make improvements.
The Guidebook is a joint publication by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) and Friends of Ecosystem-based Adaptation (FEBA) under the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The Guidebook was funded by the Global Project Mainstreaming EbA, implemented by GIZ on behalf of BMU IKI.
