Evaluación de impactos de la Adaptación basada en Ecosistemas en Miraflores, Perú
Dec 11, 2019 - Working Paper - Topic: Monitoring & Evaluation
Las medidas de Adaptación basada en Ecosistemas (AbE) están recibiendo una atención cada vez mayor como soluciones rentables para adaptarse al cambio climático. Aun así, más evidencia e igualmente metodologías se necesitan para evaluar y monitorear la eficacia de la AbE. Esta visión general de la investigación resume los mensajes clave obtenidos de un estudio de caso sobre AbE en los Andes peruanos durante el proyecto AbE Montaña en Miraflores, que tenía como objetivo mejorar la gestión de los recursos naturales en los pastos y humedales locales de montaña con un enfoque en organización comunitaria. La autora muestra cómo se pueden utilizar varios indicadores y marcos de monitoreo para mostrar la eficacia de AbE. Con la ayuda de registros de datos, incluyendo la capacidad de transporte de pastos, un índice de vegetación, percepciones de la organización comunitaria y el conocimiento, la investigación sugiere herramientas conceptuales e indicadores para medir el progreso de la AbE. Por último, las recomendaciones piden que se evalúe el enfoque para fortalecer las acciones costo – efectivas e incorporar las medidas de AbE en las políticas nacionales y globales.
Governance for Ecosystem-based Adaptation: Understanding the diversity of actors & quality of arrangements
Sep 13, 2019 - Study - Topic: Ecosystem-based Adaptation
‘Governance goes beyond Government – Successful adaptation also depends on the active engagement of other actors including national, regional, multi-lateral and international organizations, civil society and the private sector.’ Governance is the variable with greatest potential for a successful mainstreaming of Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) into policies, plans and practices. Major barriers relate to governance factors, i.e. who decides what needs to be done & how shall it be done? A new study developed by GIZ provides decision makers and practitioners with key background information on concepts and quality aspects of governance for EbA. 18 practical examples help to better understand and make use of existing governance structures to mainstream and implement EbA as well as related Nature-based Solutions approaches. The publication provides: 1) Conceptual overview: definitions, the role of state, civil society and business; 2) Description of diversity of actors & governance types in EbA projects: government, shared, private, indigenous peoples and local communities; 3) Information on quality aspects: good governance, equity aspects at international & local level, a suggested framework and principles for EbA governance; 4) A summary of barriers and opportunities including suggestions on how to enhance the quality of multi-actor processes and guiding questions for good governance; 5) Conclusions with key messages for planners & implementers. The study is based on an extensive literature review, a summary report on ‘Emerging lessons for mainstreaming EbA’, five country analyses for mainstreaming EbA in Mexico, Peru, South Africa, Viet Nam and the Philippines, expert dialogues within the BMU IKI funded International EbA Community of Practice and case studies from the web-platform PANORAMA Solutions for a Healthy Planet.
Puntos de entrada para la transverzalización de la adaptación basada en ecosistemas – El caso de Perú
Jul 15, 2019 - Case Study - Topic: Ecosystem-based Adaptation
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.

Emerging lessons for mainstreaming Ecosystem-based Adaptation: Strategic entry points and processes
Apr 15, 2019 - Report - Topic: Ecosystem-based Adaptation
This study highlights success factors and entry points for mainstreaming EbA based on 16 practical case studies from Mexico, Peru, South Africa, Philippines and Viet Nam in the following contexts: 1. National planning and development processes (e.g. climate policy and budget allocation) 2. Sectoral policies and regulatory frameworks (e.g. sector planning and land-use planning) 3. Local and community planning processes (e.g. village planning, municipal planning) 4. Private sector engagement (e.g. public-private partnerships) 5. Capacity building. It also summarizes emerging lessons learnt for mainstreaming, including identifying policy entry points, strengthen institutional collaboration, engaging multiple actors and effective communication. This report reflects the knowledge, experience and lessons learned of the many practitioners who have been leaders in the design, implementation and mainstreaming of ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) measures. It is based on the findings of four country reports on ‘entry points for EbA mainstreaming’, expert dialogues within the BMU IKI funded International EbA Community of Practice (EbA-CoP), and case studies from the web-platform PANORAMA Solutions for a Healthy Planet.
Solutions in Focus: Ecosystem-Based Adaptation from Mountains to Oceans – How people adapt to climate change by using nature
Sep 05, 2018 - Report - Topic: Ecosystem-based Adaptation
‘From the mountain pastures of Peru, to the coral reefs of Vanuatu…’ Ecosystem-based Adaptation is a topic of global relevance that is implemented successfully in a broad range of countries and ecosystems. A new publication developed by GIZ under the PANORAMA initiative illustrates the diversity of EbA in practice – ‘from mountains to oceans’ – that can be found online at the PANORAMA — Solutions for a Healthy Planet platform (www.panorama.solutions). A selection of 30 applied EbA measures (solutions) is presented along the following chapters: 1. Mountain, grassland and forest ecosystems 2. River, wetland and inland water ecosystems 3. Agro-ecosystems and drylands 4. Urban ecosystems 5. Marine and coastal ecosystems This publication intends to inspire policy and decision makers as well as project developers, showing that EbA has ‘many faces’ and is being implemented successfully by a broad range of actors and organizations.
