Jointly hosted by the BMU-IKI funded and GIZ implemented Global Project Mainstreaming EbA and IUCN under the Friends of EbA (FEBA) network, EbA Knowledge Days are typically held annually at key UNFCCC and CBD policy fora. The 8th EbA Knowledge Day will be held in a virtual format.

This year’s Knowledge Day theme will be: “The Future of Ecosystem-based Adaptation: Enhancing cross-sectoral collaboration and identifying new opportunities for long-term resilience

Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) has the potential to provide combined solutions for climate change and biodiversity loss. Leading up to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP 26 and the adoption of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, the moment is opportune to discuss how EbA can be a vehicle to use and maximize the synergies between climate change and biodiversity agendas.

This EbA Knowledge Day will focus on analyzing the latest, cross-sectoral developments related to EbA in policy, practice, research and financing and, in this context, participants will discuss outlooks and priorities for EbA, identify opportunities for capitalizing on EbA action to date, as well as innovative avenues for maximizing EbA benefits in the future. The day will include input by high-level officials, panel discussions, and interactive thematic sessions. Updates to the program will be published on the FEBA and Adaptation Community webpages.
