Learning Briefs of the EbA Community of Practice now available online

How to mainstream Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) in national and subnational processes? How to generate evidence on effectiveness and what are success stories on communicating EbA to a wider audience? What are opportunities and instruments for financing EbA measures at different scales? And how to set up monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems and indicators to track adaption results?

At the 2nd International EbA Community of Practice Workshop, around 80 experts from governments, research and policy institutions, and civil society from 22 countries came together for a stocktaking on

  1. Entry points for EbA mainstreaming in national and subnational processes (NAP, UNFCCC & CBD synergies, linking national and subnational policies),
  2. Evidence on EbA effectiveness and its sucessful communication,
  3. Finance options to sustain EbA measures, and
  4. Monitoring and evaluation on EbA success.

Four learning briefs summarizing the outcomes of the workshop sessions are now available here.
