What are the recent developments at global and national level and experiences on mainstreaming ecosystem-based adaptation? What are promising entry points for mainstreaming EbA? How to measure success of EbA to demonstrate and communicate EbA impacts? Which public and private options are available to sustainably finance EbA? And how to best generate and use evidence on EbA effectiveness?

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 to exchange on selected topics defined during the 1st workshop in June 2016. The workshop was structured around plenary and parallel discussion sessions that aimed to contribute to four core objectives: Identifying entry points for EbA mainstreaming; monitoring and evaluation of EbA; financing challenges and opportunities; evidence of EbA effectiveness.

The documentation will be made available on the EbA subsection on www.AdaptationCommunity.net.

The workshop was organized by the global BMUB IKI-funded project “Mainstreaming EbA – Strengthening ecosystem-based adaptation in planning and decision-making processes” implemented by GIZ.
