7th international EbA Community of Practice Workshop – presentations and recordings

In November 2022, the BMU-IKI funded and GIZ-implemented Global Project Mainstreaming EbA welcomed a group of 60 Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) practitioners to the 7th international EbA Community of Practice Workshop. After the two previous EbA CoP workshops were held online only due to the pandemic, this was the first hybrid event, with the majority of participants convening in person in Bonn, and others joining online. 

For two days, participants came together to look back, take stock and discuss the future of the EbA Community of Practice. The Global Project Mainstreaming EbA is coming to an end, and unfortunately this event was its last workshop.  At the heart of the workshop was the formal and informal exchange between participants, including a range of in person formats such as a marketplace, fireside talks as well as different group exercises and breakout sessions. 

Links to all presentations, recordings, as well as additional resources such as a photo collection, an updated publication overview and the new EbA project movie are now made available in this overview.
