Both Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) and Climate Risk Finance & Insurance (CRFI) can be used to enhance adaptation, reduce and transfer risk, and build resilience to the growing impacts from natural and human-made hazards.

The GIZ joint publication by the Global Project Mainstreaming EbA, the InsuResilience Secretariat and ACRI+ is available now.
