With support from GIZ, WWF and Arup conducted a review of innovative practices across several regions of the world that integrate both ecosystem services and climate change projections in planning and design. With 60% of the land expected to be urbanized by 2030 yet to be built, alongside an estimated 25 million km of new roads by 2050, there is urgent need to identify and replicate practices that preserve ecosystem services, enhance climate resilience and mitigate the expected effects of climate change.
Together, IIED, IUCN, UNEP-WCMC and GIZ have developed the EbA Tools Navigator to help practitioners and policymakers identify the most appropriate tools for including EbA into their climate adaptation plans. This searchable database currently includes information on more than 240 tools and methods for planning, implementing and monitoring EbA activities.
This overview brief explains mitigation and adaptation linkages by applying the Resilience Gap Model. The energy sector of Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS) has been chosen as an example to study the practical applicability of the model’s assumptions and predictions of the theoretical model.
La présente étude, réalisée dans le cadre de la composante 2 du Projet d’Appui Scientifique aux processus de Plans Nationaux d’Adaptation (PAS-PNA), vise à combler les insuffisances en termes de capitalisation de connaissances existantes, en donnant un panorama, le plus exhaustif possible, des connaissances scientifiques existantes relatives aux ressources en eau au Burkina Faso et à l’impact des changements climatiques sur ces ressources.
A Comunidade Internacional de Boas Práticas em Adaptação baseada em Ecossistemas (AbE) visa o compartilhamento de conhecimentos, experiências e aprendizagem para além de projetos, instituições e limites regionais em AbE. O objetivo é desenvolver, em conjunto, abordagens, lições aprendidas baseadas em evidências e melhores práticas para planejar e implementar medidas efetivas de AbE, para ajudar as pessoas a se adaptarem aos efeitos adversos da mudança do clima por meio de um processo colaborativo de aprendizado.
The provision of climate finance, especially for adaptation needs in vulnerable and local communities, is considered a key element and political goal in the international climate change space. In this paper, several key challenges and potential solutions for channeling money from the international to the local level have been identified and analysed.
Umfassendes Risikomanagement verbindet Strategien und Maßnahmen zur Reduzierung von Katastrophen- und Klimarisiken. Anstelle von separaten Einzelmaßnahmen werden sowohl bewährte als auch innovative Instrumente aus dem Klimaschutz, der Anpassung an den Klimawandel, dem Katastrophenrisikomanagement sowie der sozialen Sicherung zu einem Gesamtansatz kombiniert.
Comprehensive risk management involves bringing together strategies and measures to reduce disaster and climate risks. Rather than a series of individual measures, it combines both tried-and-tested and innovative instruments from the fields of climate change mitigation, climate change adaptation, disaster risk management and social protection into a single holistic approach.
Este estudio de caso de Perú fue desarrollado por GIZ como parte de una serie que resume puntos de entrada prometedores de la política y las estructuras de gobernanza para la incorporación de AbE a nivel política y profesional. Incluye cuatro ejemplos que ilustran la diversidad de iniciativas que apoyan la incorporación de AbE pero también muestran las barreras existentes.
Este estudio de caso de México fue desarrollado por GIZ como parte de una serie que resume puntos de entrada prometedores de la política y las estructuras de gobernanza para la incorporación de AbE a nivel política y profesional. Incluye tres ejemplos que ilustran la diversidad de iniciativas que apoyan la incorporación de AbE pero también muestran las barreras existentes.
The 5th EbA Knowledge Day was organized by GIZ, IUCN and IIED under the Friends of EbA (FEBA) network in the framework of UNFCCC SBSTA 50. The aim of the event was to enhance knowledge on assessing effectiveness of EbA measures (part 1: morning session) and to better understand governance frameworks relevant for EbA mainstreaming (part 2: afternoon session).The documentation covers key messages, presentations and photos of the event.
La présente étude, réalisée dans le cadre de la composante 2 du Projet d’Appui Scientifique aux processus de Plans Nationaux d’Adaptation (PAS-PNA), sur l’impact des changements climatiques sur les ressources en eau au Burkina Faso se base sur la comparaison de résultats de différent modèles hydrologiques et de surface continentale globaux ayant participé au projet d’intercomparaison de modèles d’impacts ISIMIP2b.
